Description

The exhibition Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) retraces the exceptional career of a woman and a painter who, at odds with the practices on her time and her circle, became an essential figure in the Parisian avant-garde from the late 1860s until her premature death in 1895. In an environment that was very masculine and not very open at the time, the young woman was able to impose her style and beliefs. Painting from a model allowed her to explore several themes of modern life, such as the intimacy of bourgeois life, the taste for resorts and gardens or the importance of fashion or female domestic work. She was able to shake up the established codes supported by a pleiad of artists and dear friends such as Degas who had invited her to participate in the first impressionist exhibition organized in 1874.

Not to be missed!

TOP TIP: the admission ticket to the Musée d’Orsay and Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) exhibition is included in the Paris Region Pass Experience.
