Women in art movements are all too easily forgotten. Those that were pioneers in their times remain overlooked in today’s market as art lovers flock to work from their male peers. Thankfully, there are collectors and curators out there trying to address the balance. One such example is the exhibition for Berthe Morisot at the Musee d’Orsay.
Morisot was a contemporary of Monet, Renoir and Degas in the French impressionist movement. There are clear similarities in style and subject when you look at her work. Yet, there is still a sense of personal identity that showcases her individual talent. She began painting in this movement in the 1870s and captured the lives of the Parisian bourgeois. This summer, the museum presents 60 of her paintings to help bring her back into the public eye. The show continues until the 22nd of September. This is one for all art lovers – regardless of gender.
