5.0 out of 5 stars Morisot at last!, 25 April 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Berthe Morisot (Paperback)
Berthe Morisot was perhaps one of the most impressionist of the impressionists. Despite this, her work is routinely under-represented in exhibitions of this art movement. Already in this as yet short year there has been an exhibition in Madrid titled 'impressionism and post-impressionism' in which there was a glut of other (male) painters and not a one by Berthe Morisot.

As if this were not enough, she was, as a woman, constantly damned with patronising praise by her (male) painterly contemporaries, a tendency which lazy, unthinking curators repeat to this day. What this book by Kathleen Adler and Tamar Garb does is ruthlessly cut through the fog of condescending 'appreciation' and expose it for it is: the relegation of a great woman painter to 'feminine' immanence.

This is not just a book about art, and Morisot's in particular, although I fancy it will greatly please Morisot lovers: the colour reproductions are very well-chosen. But readers who are interested in how women's accomplishments have been smothered or erased will also find this book of interest.
