Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot

Jean-Dominique Rey


A detailed and highly personal account of the life and works of the most influential female impressionist painter, this paperback edition of a 2018 book has been published to tie in with the exhibition Berthe Morisot: Shaping Impressionism at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London (until Sep 10). Berthe Morisot won over the impressionists with her talent and became the foremost female painter of the movement alongside Monet, Degas. Renoir and others. Described by Guillaume Apollinaire as “one of the most complete artists of her day”, she was underestimated for more than a century and has only in recent years been recognised as a visionary with a pioneering painting style.
