Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Berthe Morisot by Kathleen Adler 14 April 2010

Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot: I will never know enough about Her or Her Compatriots of the same time. I of course am Sad that most teachers never emphasize the study of the relatives of artist. To know she had a daughter and to know so much of the daughter by Her paintings is wondeful! The delicacy, the hardship of being a woman. Even a woman with means and to know how close the sounds of War came. There is so much more to learn. I love the style of this book. The wonderful large plates. It did not skimp on insights from fellow artist of Berthe. I long for more.
