Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Berthe Morisot

an impression of her exhibited pictures


What pictures did Berthe Morisot exhibit in 1877?
On this page you will see an accounted impression of the 12+1hc=13 pictures that Berthe Morisot probably exhibited at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1877 (catalogue numbers 120-131+hc). Morisot exhibited 4 oil paintings, 4 pastels and 5 watercolours/drawings. Most works were figure paintings. See also the clarification at the bottom of this page. I render the pictures thematically and chronological by number. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a group) and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!

Compare works of others:
I couldn’t find a work of Morisot to suggest for 3IE-1877-124, l’Amazone. To compare I render a work of Edouard Manet.


For explanation of the subscriptions, see here. 6 works Morisot exhibited in 1877 were without title, what makes it (almost) impossible to identify them. Often I render more than one option. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the picture that was exhibited. For no. 124 I coudn’t find a picture. See link for an account of my choices (with references, info, discussion, location on Google-maps). My main sources are Moffett (=R2), Berson (R90II) and  Bataille & Wildenstein (R100). My main sources for the pictures are (=iR2), WikiCommons (=iR6) and Google images (=iR10). Sometimes I forgot the source (=iRx). See for the other sources at the bottom of the main page on Berthe Morisot.
