Less well-known than her contemporaries Monet, Degas, and Renoir, Berthe Morisot is still a major figure in the Impressionist movement, and one of the most innovative painters of the group. The Musée d’Orsay is retracing her career with a major exhibition, extending from the late 1860s until her premature death in 1895. Inspired by daily life and resolutely modern subjects, Morisot was interested in various subjects such as the bourgeoisie, women’s domestic work, and fashion. Working quickly, she strived to blur the boundaries between the inside and the outside, the private and the public. An unmissable exhibition of the work of a great artist who has artfully combined art and life.
