Berthe Morisot Masterpieces of Art, Hardback Book

Berthe Morisot Masterpieces of Art Hardback

Part of the Masterpieces of Art series

Hardback

Description

Regarded by her fellow impressionists as a 'virtuoso colourist', Berthe Morisot (1841-95) strove to be considered an equal among her male peers - an uphill struggle at a time when women were generally forbidden from taking formal artistic training.

Nevertheless, she succeeded in forging a career, gaining respect, becoming a key player and creating a body of work that has stood the test of time.

Her impressionism vibrates with light and spontaneity and yet possesses a density of form through the deft use of colour.

Inevitably she painted what she experienced: scenes of intimate domestic and family life, gardens, flowers, landscapes - representing the real, unfiltered day-to-day life of 19th-century women - from the tender depiction of maternal love in The Cradle to the Far-Eastern inspired Julie with her Greyhound Laerte.

This gorgeous book introduces the reader to the background, life and work of the artist, followed by a curated selection of her best work in exquisite full-page reproductions.
