Berthe Morisot: Woman Impressionist
at the Barnes Foundation

After many years of learning and sharing about Berthe Morisot, AGTS OJR members were ready to see the real thing(s) when the Barnes hosted a brilliant retrospective of her works.
A contemporary of Renoir, Monet, Degas, and Manet (who was her brother-in-law), Berthe Morisot was one of the original French Impressionists.  As a young woman she was trained by landscape artist, Camille Corot.  Yet she forged her own distinctive path within her community of cutting edge artists.  The story of her life and art during turn-of-the-century Paris are fascinating. 

At the Barnes Foundation exhibit, Berthe Morisot: Woman Impressionist, members saw first-hand the wide range of her work.  With perspectives and subjects slightly different from her male contemporaries, Morisot's themes include working women and fashion along with the landscapes, gardens and beautifully lit interiors typical of the Impressionists.

The Cradle by Berthe Morisot
Long a part of AGTS's portfolio, members experienced the work in person at the exhibit- much to our delight!

Who doesn't love a Fieldtrip?
The Philadelphia area has great resources for an artful education.  

When the Barnes Foundation announced its Morisot exhibit in the Fall of 2018, AGTS OJR members jumped at the opportunity to see her masterpieces in person and to learn more about the artist's process and history.
