Berthe Morisot

The Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (Québec City, Canada), the Barnes Foundation (Philadelphia, PA), the Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, TX), and the Musée d'Orsay (Paris, France) announced the internationally touring exhibition dedicated to one of the revolutionary artists of the French Impressionist movement, Berthe Morisot (1841–1895). Co-organized by the four institutions, Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist will focus on the artist's figure paintings and portraits through approximately 50 to 60 paintings from both public institutions and private collections. This tour will be the first dedicated presentation of Morisot's work to be held in the United States since 1987, the very first solo exhibition of her work to be mounted in Canada, and the first time since 1941 that a French national museum will devote a monographic show to this important painter. One of the founding members of the French Impressionists, Berthe Morisot was celebrated in her time as one of the leaders of the group, and her innovative works were coveted by dealers and collectors alike. Despite her accomplishments, today she is not as well-known as her Impressionist colleagues, such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Co-curated by Sylvie Patry, Chief Curator/Deputy Director for Curatorial Affairs and Collections at the Musée d'Orsay, Paris and Consulting Curator at the Barnes Foundation, and Nicole R. Myers, The Lillian and James H. Clark Curator of European Painting and Sculpture at the Dallas Museum of Art, Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist will both illuminate and reassert Morisot's role as an essential figure within the Impressionist movement and the development of modern art in Paris in the second half of the 19th century. The exhibition traces the exceptional path of a female painter who, in opposition to the norms of her time and social background, became an important member of the Parisian avant-garde from the late 1860s until her untimely death in 1895. Through her portrayal of the human figure, Morisot was able to explore the themes of modern life that came to define Impressionism, such as the intimacy of contemporary bourgeois living and leisure activities, the importance of female fashion and the toilette, and women's domestic work, all while blurring the lines between interior and exterior, public and private, finished and unfinished..

Fait main / Hand Made

The exhibition seeks to draw visitors' attention to the question of artistic practice as it relates to popular practices, a recurrent dimension of contemporary art in recent years. In light of the growing body of research supported by current output, it appears that, increasingly, high-quality works are stemming essentially from contact with popular culture, thereby presupposing a broad network of references and, more specifically in the case of this project, with popular art, which implies more extensive reliance on techniques allied in particular with handicrafts, thereby engendering specific know-how. The exhibition will make the connection between the output of Canadian artists who, while their work presents diversified themes and contents, all come from popular backgrounds without, however, drawing from them sources or references, but their own approach. Such an approach is likely to enlighten the public. It thus underpins practice that hinges on artisanal processes, a mastery of the material, and imagery that is wrongly perceived as superficial. Accordingly, works ranging from direct cutting to digital textile will evoke notions of know-how, reskilling, highbrow and lowbrow, and making and having made..
