Of the six Impressionist painters whose first exhibition scandalized and fascinated Paris in 1874, Berthe Morisot was the only woman. She reached a pinnacle of artistic achievement despite the restraints society placed on her sex, adroitly combining her artistic ambitions with a rewarding family life. Anne Higonnet brings fully to life an accomplished artist and her world.
Anne Higonnet is Associate Professor of Art History at Wellesley College and the author of Berthe Morisot's Images of Women (1992).

From Our Editors

'Ann Higonnet makes an excellent case for re-routing our assumptions about artistic achievement. And she makes it imperative that we reconsider the achievements of Berthe Morisot.' --Felicia Kornbluh, 'Women's Review of Books'

Editorial Reviews

"A memorable portrait of an admirable woman, as elegantly simple and light in touch as a Manet, or a Morisot."--"Entertainment Weekly
