Berthe Morisot

$ 2.99

Today Berthe Morisot is recognised as the first lady of Impressionism, who left behind her an exceptional body of work, including oil paintings, pastels, watercolours, prints, sculptures and several hundred drawings. The only woman to join the “rejected” Impressionists in the first of their exhibitions, she was also a close friend and colleague of Édouard Manet. Her paintings are celebrated for their delicate and subtle quality, brimming with exquisite colour, winning her the admiration of her fellow Impressionists. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Morisot’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
