Berthe Morisot: The Forgotten Impressionist

Berthe Morisot created some of the most progressive and visually pleasing works in late 19th Century France.

She participated in all but one of the 8 Impressionist exhibitions (only Pissarro showed work in all 8).

Yet on her death certificate she was listed as having ‘no profession’.

What does this tell us about female artists working in this period?

Why has so little attention been paid to this artist until recently?

This talk will explore Morisot’s revolutionary work, including her most famous painting ‘The Cradle’.
