Curator's Talk (On Demand)

Watch now

Join Dr Lois Oliver, co-curator of Berthe Morisot: Shaping Impressionism, for an inspiring online introduction to the exhibition.

Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) was a central figure in the Impressionist movement that revolutionised modern art with swiftly brushed images of contemporary life. This talk explores Morisot’s distinctive feminine perspective and reveals how the artist’s unique vision was shaped by her lifelong enthusiasm for eighteenth-century French painting, and the art of the English portraitists Gainsborough, Reynolds and Romney.
