Berthe Morisot. Biography of impressionist artist by Anne Higonnet. Pub by William collins and Son 1990. \'Berthe Morisot is the best known of the women Impressionists. This biography describes her double life: the conventional life of sister, daughter, wife and mother; and the successful prolific painter. It draws on journals and letters, many of which have not been published before. The author gives a detailed portrait of France and the French art world at the turn of the century, as well as a compelling study of the life of a woman who managed a successful professional life in an avant-garde milieu without sacrificing the demanding conventions of the 19th-century family life.
