Berthe Morisot an Artist who Defied Conventions, Episode 414

Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassat are the only two Impressionist female artists that regular people (sometimes) know about. Berthe fought tooth and nail to be recognized in a select group of Impressionist artists without ever seeming too strident. For the times, this was revolutionary because that group included Monet, Manet, Renoir, Degas and many more men. Women were left out like they didn't matter at all. Most of the male artists she worked with didn't see any problem with that. Argh!!!!

Elyse Rivin of Toulouse Guided Walks does a wonderful job telling us about the life of Berthe Morisot, her art, and how she fits in her historical context.
