Berthe Morisot

From Publishers Weekly
A founder of impressionism, Berthe Morisot (1840-1895) painted "safely feminine" themes--family or friends, domestic interiors, vacation spots, parks. In the bourgeois, sexist world of 19th-century France, "it would have been unthinkable for her to paint the kinds of brothel scenes Degas did, or even pictures of train stations like Manet's," writes Higonnet, a Wellesley art professor. Yet Morisot, a strong-willed pioneer, brought to her analytical scenes a distinctly feminine point of view, portraying women in moments of self-awareness. This luminous biography shows what Morisot had to overcome to be an artist, and how much she accomplished. Her marriage to Eugene Manet, brother of famed painter Edouard, provided stability. At 37 Morisot gave birth to Julie, soon to figure in the artist's sensitive explorations...

From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4-An engaging introduction to Monet's later work, featuring his gardens at Giverny. Based on a visit to the artist by a girl who turns out to be the daughter of Impressionist Berthe Morisot and a niece of Edouard Manet, The Magical Garden effortlessly combines artistic fancy with biographical fact. The simple story of a city child's day in the country is brought to life through clear text and vibrant gouache illustrations that blend seamlessly to provide an ideal introduction to Monet's temperament, work habits, and aesthetic. Anholt pulls off a deft illustrative trick, using his own fluid style to capture the flavor of many of Monet's most frequently reproduced works. Several illustrations are successful combinations of photo reproductions of Monet's paintings overlaid with Anholt's drawings of the...

Book Description
A celebration of domesticity and the daily life of the world's best-loved artists, filled with paintings, sketches, photographs, and quotations from diaries and letters.Impressionist artists and their homes are inseparably linked: Monet and Giverny, Renoir and Les Cagnes, Pissarro and his Hermitage. For each, home meant something slightly different: a place of comfort in a rapidly evolving society, a sanctuary immune to changing fortune and fame, a simpler way of life away from the city, or a place to entertain and to express individual taste. All of the artists, however, made their homes a mainstay of their art.Through this book we follow the artists' daily activities and routines—working, dining, bathing, socializing, sleeping—and come ever closer to the extraordinary characters behind the paintings.
