Berthe Morisot: Woman impressionist 2021 wall calendar
This calendar features twelve colourful and beautiful artworks by French impressionist artist Berthe Morisot, from the National Gallery of Art, Washington.
Berthe Marie Pauline Morisot (January 14, 1841 – March 2, 1895) was a French painter and a member of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the Impressionists.
If the French impressionists were vanguards, Berthe Morisot—the only woman among them—was revolutionary. As a founding member of the impressionists, Morisot was an essential figure in their movement, both financing it and painting some of its exceptional works. As she broke away from the official arts society, her style shifted. But her commitment to soft colours and domestic themes remained consistent.
Her paintings are dignified and modest, and she was uncommon among impressionists for her treatment of women as primary subjects. Which makes sense: many of the women featured in these paintings are her sister, mother, daughter, or nieces. The twelve paintings in this calendar showcase her vision of the world as a quiet, rosy place.
