Dulwich Picture Gallery    


In partnership with the Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris, Berthe Morisot: Shaping Impressionism, brings together around 30 of Morisot’s masterpieces from international collections to reveal the artist as a trailblazer of the movement.

A founding member of the Impressionist group, Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) was known for her swiftly painted glimpses of contemporary life and intimate domestic scenes. She featured prominently in the Impressionist exhibitions and defied social norms to become one of the movement’s most influential figures.

The exhibition also includes artwork by greats such as Reynolds, Gainsborough and Fragonard drawing on new research and previously unpublished archival material from the Musée Marmottan Monet to trace the roots of her inspiration, revealing the ways in which Morisot engaged with 18th century art and culture, while also highlighting the originality of the artistic vision, which ultimately set her apart from her predecessors.
