Berthe Morisot, Under The Orange Tree (1889)

Berthe Morisot painted her daughter in the garden of the family’s winter home in Nice. She married the brother of Edouard Manet in 1874 and gave birth to her daughter Julie in 1878, her only child. She had success early, at the age of 23, when two landscape paintings were accepted by The Salon in 1864. From 1874 she chose to exhibit with the Impressionists. Her daughter published her memoir, Growing Up with the Impressionists: The Diary of Julie Manet, in 1987.
