Berthe Morisot exhibition

Weather is very pleasant in Paris this week: Sunny, the sky is blue, 22 to 24 degrees, perfect. After class this morning at Palais Garnier, I went to the Berthe Morisot exhibition at Musée d’Orsay.

Visitors admiring the artworks

Berthe Morisot is a female impressionism painter (1841 – 1895). She was a member of the circle of impressionists in Paris and was the only woman in that group. She is much less popular than the other impressionists such as Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Pissarro, Renoir…… etc. Yet, Critic Paul Mantz wrote in his review of the third Impressionist exhibition in 1877: “There is only one true Impressionist in the whole revolutionary group—and that is Mlle Berthe Morisot.” Here are some of my favorite picks from the exhibition.

    • Miss Wong, I am so glad to learn that you enjoy reading the blog. I enjoy writing it even more! Indeed, one could easily recognize the femininity in Morisot’s works. I am no expert in looking at paintings but I enjoyed this exhibition.

      Time submerging into the French way of life would not have been possible without you bringing me to Paris 8 years ago.

      Big Hugs
