Berthe Morisot

My recent reading (“Berthe Morisot” by Dominique Bona) as well as the new exhibition at the Musée d’Orsay  (in english : Click here) dedicated to the artist,  led me to write this article  This exhibition is a unique opportunity to discover or rediscover  the work of this amazing artist, one of the greatest French impressionist painter. I hope my article will make you feel like visiting this exhibition and discovering more about the life and work of this amazing artist ! To book you ticket : CLICK HERE

Through my recent reading  Berthe Morisot  (Dominique Bona, French author), I discovered a woman whose life is as fascinating as her painting : she defought the conventions to live her life and art on her way,  with an unfailing determination,  at a time when women did not have careers outside of their home and marriage.Her art is fascinating : she is a key figure in the founding of Impressionism. She broke the rules of realism, in the way she painted

Certainly one of the three greatest female impressionist painters (with Marie Bracquemond and Mary Cassat). She was respected and admired by her counterparts and friends Monet, Manet, Pissaro, Renoir, Degas… But unfortunately her work has been undervalued for too long…  She was a women, and that might explain it all.

The Musée d’Orsay houses today one of the most important collections of Impressionist paintings in the world. My article about the Musée d’Orsay : Click here

Here is a list of some of the most famous impressionist painters : Frédéric Bazille, Gustave Caillebotte, Mary Cassat, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Camille Pissarro, Pieerre Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Marie Bracquemond… Just to name a few.

 Exhibition Berthe Morisot at the Musée d’Orsay :

from the 18th of June to the 22d of Septembre 2019

The Musée d’Orsay is paying tribute to the talent of one of this great French artist. The first time the Musée d’Orsay dedicates an exhibition to Berthe Morisot’s work. And it’s the first retrospective exhibition dedicated to this artist since the 1941 exhibition at the Orangerie.

 Who is Berthe Morisot  ?

‘I do not think any man would ever treat a woman as his equal, and it is all I ask because I know my worth.’ Berthe Morisot – 1890 (“Je ne crois pas qu’il y ait jamais eu un homme traitant une femme d’égale à égal, et c’est tout ce que j’aurais demandé. Car je sais que je les vaux.” Berthe Morisot, 1890)


Berthe Morisot

She is one of the major figure of the Impressionism. She was born in 1841. She died at age 54 in 1895.

She was a member of the Parisian avant-garde impressionist movement. Her friends were Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Fantin Latour, or Pissaro. She exhibited with them regularly.  She frequented French writers too : Stéphane Mallarmé, Zola, Baudelaire, Paul Valery… Her work remained popular throughout her life. But her true value was never fully recognized by the public and the institutions. Her marriage license and her death certificat listed her as “without profession” …

Independent and determined :

Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot

I will achieve it only [being an artist] by perseverance, and by openly asserting my determination to emancipate myself.”   Berthe Morisot – 1871       («Je n’obtiendrai (mon indépendance) qu’à force de persévérance et en manifestant très ouvertement l’intention de m’émanciper»)

As a woman and as a painter : She was one of the most influential female Impressionist painters. One of the rare woman to make the painting her profession at a time when women couldn’t expect to have careers outside of marriage.She defought social norms, always refused an academic art. She was determined to be an artist as well as a wife and mother. She fought against the preconceptions of women’s roles at a time when women were not allowed to join the official art institutions.

After Luncheon, 1881

After Luncheon – by Berthe Morisot – 1881

As a model : Posing for Manet, was already an unconventional choice : Manet was a controversial artist for his paintings “Le Déjeuner sur l’herbe” (exhibited in the Salon in 1863) and “Olympia” (exhibited in 1865) 

Oympia - Edouard Manet - 1865

Olympia – Edouard Manet – 1865 (The model : Victorine Meurent)

Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet :

A Model subject and a muse for Manet (1832 – 1883) :

Berthe Morisot posed for Manet. Between 1868 and 1874, Edouard Manet painted her twelve times, more than any other woman. It’s Henri Fantin Latour who introduced her in 1868 to Edouard Manet. Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet became close friends. He was a great admirer of her work and supported her although, and they both influenced each other art

A contemporary wrote : “When [Manet] paints Victorine, he paints her as a beautiful object; when he paints Berthe, he paints her with love and tenderness.”

The first time she posed for Manet was for “the Balcony”. But the most famous painting of Berthe Morisot by Edouard Manet is probably “Berthe Morisot with a bouquet of violets” where she is wearing a black dress

And “Le Repos”, could look like a declaration of love for his model. At least an emblematic portrait of Berthe Morisot by Manet 

Berthe Morisot - The rest - Portrait of Berthe Morisot - E Manet - 1870

Berthe Morisot – The rest – by E Manet – 1870

Were Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot in love ?

Though, through the letters she wrote,  we know that she cared deeply for Manet, nobody really knows if they both were in love.


However, Manet was a married man when they met, and Edouard Manet was also known as having numerous affairs with many women outside of his marriage.

In 1874, at age 33, she married Manet’s younger brother Eugène who was also a painter. Her husband supported Berthe Morisot’ s carrier and provided her with social and financial stability. In 1878, they had a child, Julie.


Eugene Manet and His Daughter at Bougival – by Berthe Morisot – 1881

She and her daughter were painted by Auguste Renoir too :

Her painting :

“Real painters understand with the brush” – Berthe Morisot

She started as a copyist at Le Louvre and studied painting extensively during this period. She soon refused the academic training she was receiving. Her work was first exhibited in 1864 at the Salon de Paris, a prestigious art show. She was then 23.

On the Balcony, 1872, New York - Dame et enfant sur la terrasse, Berthe Morisot, 1872

On the Balcony by Berthe Morisot, 1872

In 1872, she sold 22 paintings to a private dealer. It was the start of the career as an established artist.

She painted outdoor scenes, still-life scenes,  everyday life activities and portraits. Mostly in Paris and around, but occasionaly in England and Italy too. Always with a unconventional approach to her art, with delicacy

 She was renowned for her creativity, and her experiments with the concept of finished an unfinished in her paintings, her way to interpret traditional subjects in a modern way, her capacity to reveal with delicacy the complexity of life and human beings, and her ability to capture the movement, the light, the feelings.

‘Berthe Morisot’s uniqueness was to “live” her painting, and to paint her life’ – Paul Valery (French writer and one of her friends)

Among her most famous works : the Cradle (1872) where she shows her sister Edma contemplating her sleeping daughter and “Interior” (1872)

Le Berceau (The Cradle), 1872, Musée d'Orsay

Le Berceau (The Cradle), by Berthe Morisot 1872, Musée d’Orsay

Her paintings are spread in numerous museums and private collections all over the world. In Paris, mainly at the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Marmottan Monet

Her childhood and education :

Born in 1841 in a wealthy bourgeois family in Bourges (center of France). She had 2 older sisters Yves (although Yves is a French male first name) and Edma, and also a younger brother, Tiburce. Her family moved to Paris in 1852. She lived in Paris for the rest of her life.

Berthe and her sisters received an artistic education (music and painting lessons) and were supported by their family. Both Berthe and her sister Edma were talented artists. Edma gave up after getting married and Berthe continued working as a painter.

My tips :

  • Book you ticket in advance : Though you won’t be able to avoid waiting in line (because of the safety check) I highly recommend you to book you ticket in advance. Then go directly to the Entrance C dedicated to those who have already got a ticket. 
  • Best days and times : 
    • Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at the opening time (9.30am. Best being there around 9/9.15am)
    • Thursday at the opening night. I suggest that you’d be there around 7pm or later. (Thursday closing time at 9.45pm)
    • Avoid if possible the weekends.And the Monday is the closing day.
  • Transportation : I favor Solferino metro stop rather than Musée d’Orsay metro stop. From Solferino metro stop, about 5 minutes walk but the taking the metro (rather than the RER) is more pleasant so as the exit. And the walk to the Museum is nice too.

The Duchess de Galliera

Some History : The Palais galliera was built in the 19th century.

In 1876, the Duchesse de Galliera inherited her late husband’s fortune, including a large parcel of land in the 16th arrondissement one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Paris. She gave the land to the city of Paris in 1879 and built a museum at her expense to hold her  works of arts. It was then used by the city of Paris for temporary exhibitions. 17062017-P6170248-2


17062017-P6170247-2Since 1977, the museum has been devoted to fashion It is often referred to,  as the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris (City of Paris fashion Museum)

A Fashion Museum :17062017-IMG_8476

The Palais Galliera  now houses the Musée de la Mode de la Ville de Paris. The collections are among the richest in the world and reflect the fashion trends and habits of France from the 18th century to the present day (100 000 pieces of clothing and accessories). It only presents temporary exhibitions. Exhibitions are generally held 2-3 times a year and last 4-6 months on average. There is no permanent exhibition as many of the items are fragile and cannot be exposed to light for long periods of time. Between every exhibition, the museum is closed to the public.

Le Louvre : a wonderful building, once a fortress, then a royal residence and now a museum, with an impressive art collection 


Mona-Lisa-Leonardo-da-Vinci-Louvre-Paris-1Coming to Paris without visiting Le Louvre ?

Before designing  « A soft discovering of Le Louvre” tour,  I’ve been trying to think of how I would feel as a visitor to Paris spending a short time in Paris…

I would love to see this great Museum but I would choose maybe to leave Paris without visiting Le Louvre…

  • So many places to see and to visit and  only a few days in Paris… and Le Louvre is such a huge building, often crowded, with miles and miles of Galleries and numerous rooms and artworks
  • How would I manage to spend a few hours only in Le louvre and  see these famous masterpieces without walking miles and miles , without getting lost  and without feeling totally exhausted and frustrated at the end of visit,
  • Thus, I would probably go instead to Orsay Museum and  postpone the visit of Le Louvre until my next visit to Paris… And I would probably feel frustrated when leaving Paris…

This is why I designed this tour for you : 

a “Soft discovering of Le Louvre” 

Video : Here are the highlights along the tour :

 no stress, no waiting line, without getting lost and including the greatest masterpieces

I accompany you (only you) , give you all my attention and walk at your pace

In this article, you’ll see that Le Louvre is not only a Museum but it’s also a wonderful building with a complex and rich History. So many reason which makes it worth a visit ! Before being a Museum, the building was first a fortress then it was rebuilt several times to become a Royal Palace.

Some History

One color for each historic step

Plan Louvre au fur et à mesure de l'Histoire

First, a Fortress : The building was first erected as a fortress in 1192 by King Philippe Auguste to protect the city from Barbarian attacks. It was a thick cylindrical dungeon surrounded by towered walls. During the “Soft discovering of Le Louvre”, we’ll see the remains of this fortress

Then a Royal Palace : In the 14th century, the fortress ceased to be used for defensive purposes. It was enlarged and embellished by Charles V (king of France 1364-1380) and became a royal palaceLouvre-Charles-V

Then a Renaissance Palace : At the beginning of the 16th century, the palace enlarged by Charles V was razed and François 1st King of France (1494-1547)) ordered the construction of a new Renaissance structure of the same size. louvre-francois1er

Construction of a little Castle (= The Tuileries) nearby Le Louvre : In  1547, Catherine de Medicis (wife of Henri IV, Kiing of France) ordered the construction of a little castle nearby the west of Le Louvre, called the Tuileries.  Then Henri IV, decided to create a grandiose royal residence by joining the Louvre and the Palais des Tuileries by a series of buildings. Among these buildings : the Grande Galerie built along the Seine.The Tuileries Palace connected by the Grande Galerie to the Renaissance Louvre on Merian's 1615 map of Paris

Construction of the “Pavillon de l’Horloge” (“clock Pavillon”) : In the 17th century, in 1624, Louis XIII and his minister Richelieu added the Pavillon de l’Horloge

Le Louvre at the 19th century with the Tuileries Palace in the foreground

Under Louis XIV and his minister Colbert : The Cour Carrée, a great sure court was constructed and the Royal apartments were sumptuously decorated (= the Apollon Gallery ). After Colbert’s death, the court moved to Versailles and the French Kings lost interest in Le Louvre

After the revolution of 1789 : Napoleon I started the construction of a wing along the rue de Rivoli. Napoleon I, later kings and Napoleon III lived in the Tuileries and the Louvre was used for offices and as a museum.

In 1793, Le Louvre became a museum. It was the first state museum. It opened to the public with an
exhibit of more than 500 painting and decorative arts. Many of this art works had been confiscated from the royal family and French nobility.

From the mid-19th century onward : i Napoleon III finished the construction of the Aile Richelieu along the rue de  Rivoli.

A new perspective : Arc du Carrouse l-Tuileries gardens, Place de la Concorde-  Champs Elysées – Arc de Thriomphe. During the uprising of the Paris Commune in 1871, the Palais des Tuileries was burned. This opened the perspective we enjoy now.

In the late 80s  : a glass pyramid in the central courtyard is built (Chinese-American architect Ieoh Ming Pei) which serves as the museum’s main entrance.

In 1993, the Richelieu wing (=the building along the rue de Rivoli) which formerly housed the Ministry of Finance opened to the public

and of course, we’ll see the Gioconda and the Winged Victory too  !

Some tips : 

  • When you visit Paris, Le Louvre is a must-see, but most of the time there is a lot of people. Choose rather to go in the morning or at a night opening time (Wednesdays or Fridays)
  • Purchase your tickets in advance. It will save time. But you’ll still have to wait sometime because of the security check.
  • Pickpockets : I‘ve never had this bad experience at Le Louvre, but it may be a place where it’s more likely to happen can happen, whether inside the Louvre or outside in the courtyard. Keep you bag closed, and ignore people asking you for a donation or a signature for a petition.


Practical details : 

  • Website :
  • Opening time : Le Louvre is open everyday (except Tuesdays) from 9am to 6 pm. Night opening until 9.45pm on Wednesdays and Fr
