Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:
Berthe Morisot (1841-1895)
An impression of her paintings
at the 6th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1881
On this page you will see an impression of the 7+1hc=8 paintings that Berthe Morisot probably exhibited at the 6th ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1881 (catalogue numbers 56-62+hc). Probably 4 or 5 works were pastels. Many works depict women and here baby daughter Julie Manet. I render the pictures in a more thematical order, by format and by used technique. Unfortunatedly many pictures are in black-and-white. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a group) and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
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). Often the indentification of a painting is ‘uncertain’. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, see here. My main sources for the pictures are the-athenaeum.org (=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.
