Morisot at the Salon



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Berthe Morisot


at the Salon

an impression of her paintings


Berthe Morisot almost yearly exhibited at the Salon:
On this page you will find an impression of the pictures that Berthe Morisot submitted to the Paris Salon from 1864 – 1873, where she exhibited almost yearly. In 1869 Berthe Morisot didn’t submit (R5,p55). So it seems as if she was never rejected at the Salon. It is unclear what motivated her to join the ‘impressionist’ expositions in 1874. The paintings that she exhibited at the Salon had a lively brushstroke and were rather colourful. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!

Sometimes the identification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited and even a photograph of the location she did paint. For explanation of the subscriptions, see. See here for an account (references, translations, info, discussion, locations on Google-maps). For info on the sources see at the bottom of the main page about Morisot.
