The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents “Berthe Morisot: Impressionist Original” closing day

WHEN: Sunday 12:15pm

WHERE:  Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77005, Get Directions >

COST:  $18-$23; free for children 12 and under

DETAILS:  Berthe Morisot: “Impressionist Original” highlights the artist’s approach to portraiture and her focus on the life of women in modern Paris, her singular role in the French Impressionist movement. Following upon the recent internationally touring retrospective of the artist’s work, “Impressionist Original” will feature two dozen paintings from public and private lenders, including four important works in Houston collections that could not be included in the traveling exhibition. Morisot’s domestic scenes focus on children, family, and flowers, capturing a woman’s life in the late 19th century. Through her portrayal of the human figure, Morisot was able to explore the themes of modern life that came to define Impressionism – the intimacy of contemporary bourgeois living and leisure activities, female fashion, and women’s domestic work – while blurring distinctions between interior and exterior, public and private, finished and unfinished. The exhibition illuminates the artist’s role as an essential figure within the Impressionist movement. One of the founding members of the Impressionist group, along with Monet, Degas, Sisley, and Renoir, Morisot achieved critical and commercial success during her lifetime. The selected works on view reveal a painter who, against the norms of her time and her elevated social background, became an important member of the Parisian avant-garde from the late 1860s until her death in 1895.
