Join the Columbia University Club of Philadelphia with CAA Arts Access for a tour of Berthe Morisot: Woman Impressionist on Saturday, January 12, 2019 for a private docent-led tour before the museum opens to the public. We will explore the works of Berthe Morisot (French, 1841–1895), one of the major impressionists, worked alongside Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This exhibition traces the exceptional path of a woman who defied the social norms of her time to join the Parisian avant-garde.

After the tour, alumni and guests are invited to join us for an optional luncheon at The Garden Restaurant located in The Barnes. A pre-fixe lunch menu will be provided.

Meeting information will be provided via email confirmation a few days before the event.

About the exhibition

Berthe Morisot (French, 1841–1895), one of the major impressionists, worked alongside Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This exhibition traces the exceptional path of a woman who defied the social norms of her time to join the Parisian avant-garde.

Through her portrayal of the human figure, Morisot explored impressionist themes of modernity: the intimacy of contemporary bourgeois living and family life, the taste for resorts and gardens, the importance of fashion, and women’s domestic work. Deliberately sketchlike and unfinished in appearance, her works are not an unmediated reflection of her daily environment: they address the temporality of representation itself in a careful capture of the world that attempts to “fix something of the passing moment.”

Her Path and ProcessThis exhibition charts the course of Morisot's career in rough chronological order, taking cues from major themes in her work and life.
