A comprehensive, illustrated tribute to the life and works of the most influential female Impressionist painter. Berthe Morisot won over the Impressionists with her talent and became the first woman of the period alongside Monet, Degas, Renoir, Pissarro, and Sisley. Morisot's paintings demonstrate how far ahead of her time she was when she created them, pioneering a new style of painting. However, she was underestimated for more than a century.
This book, a comprehensive monograph showcasing the life and works of this influential artist, focuses on the important stages of her career, including her first participation in the Salon de Paris at the age of twenty-three in 1864. Moreover, the book assesses the significance of the time certain paintings were created, taking into consideration what was happening in the artist's life during that period.
