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 19th-century family life.
