Today we’re talking about one of the most famous female Impressionists: Berthe Morisot. Initially, she gave up on getting married and having kids so she could pursue her career as an artist.

Morisot was successful at a young age and had several pieces of art exhibited in the Paris Salon. She painted scenes from her everyday life as an upper-middle-class (bourgeoisie) woman.

Morisot became friends with Eduard Manet (not to be confused with Claude Monet) and ended up marrying his brother, Eugene Manet.
