Berthe Morisot: January 2016 - 175 Anniversary of her Birth
2016 - 1975 Anniversary of her Birth.
Berthe Marie Pauline Morisot, 14th January 1841 – 2nd March 1895,
French impressionist painter.
When the second Impressionist exhibition opened in the spring of 1876 in Paris, one sharp-tongued critic described its participants as "five or six lunatics, one of which is a woman." The woman, of course, was Berthe Morisot, who in spite of her gender became a leading figure of the most famous artistic movement of the 19th Century.
