Berthe Morisot, a major figure in Impressionism, has been exhibited in a French national museum since 1941. It's about time! Less well known than her friends Monet, Degas or Renoir, she was no less innovative and one of the founders of this avant-garde movement of the 19th century. An impressionist woman and a painter of women, she broke with Academism, while building the foundations of a so-called "feminine" art. After the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, the Barnes Foundation, the Dallas Museum of Art, the exhibition is presented in Orsay.
