Published in conjunction with an exhibition of the same name at the Mount Holyoke College Art Museum from March 14 to May 9, 1988. A thorough monograph to the artist’s life, Berthe Morisot: Impressionist explores her life, career, art, friendships with other Impressionist artists, and conservation issues surrounding her works. From the dust jacket: “Berthe Morisot has been the least known and least appreciated of the great French Impressionist artists…This exhibition is certain to establish Morisot as one of the greatest of the Impressionist masters, and also one of the most daring and influential.”
