Berthe Morisot

Today I give you Berthe Morisot, one of the three great female french Impressionists. She is said to have been influenced by, and to have influenced Manet. Although she began as a landscape artist, I find her representations of women and children to be particularly refreshing, so here are a few of my favorites, culled from around the web: 

on the lakeside, 1883

Woman at her toilette, 1875

Berthe Morisot, Le berceau (The Cradle), 1872
