Manet Berthe Morisot With a Bouquet of Violets

Berthe Morisot With a Bouquet of Violets
Édouard Manet – 1872

Women in the arts

Edouard Manet made this sarcastic observation of his future sister-in-law Berthe Morisot’s talent in reference to the exclusion of women from participation in the Paris Salons of the time. Equally ground-breaking, Manet is quite well-known while Morisot is still excluded from the public consciousness.
