A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Berthe Morisot (1841-1895)


Musée d'Orsay / Paris / Art

She painted her husband, Eugène Manet (younger brother of Édouard); counted among her friends the artists Monet, Degas, and Renoir; and, until her death in 1895, was a prominent member of the Parisian avant-garde. Berthe Morisot, however, is not nearly as well-known as her male colleagues. The Musée d’Orsay features the Impressionist painter and her opalescent palette in an exhibition guided by Morisot’s own mantra, that a painting should “capture something that passes.” —J.V.

“Berthe Morisot: Impressionist Original” is on exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, from October 20, 2019 to January 12, 2020.
