Repose (Study of Berthe Morisot), 1870-1871
|Artist||Manet, Édouard||Exhibited at the Salon of 1873 this was the second portrait by Manet of Berthe Morisot, painted when she was thirty. Its loose, sketchy style aroused considerable criticism, mixed with some praise for its ‘modernity’. Morisot later told her daughter that she was in considerable discomfort while sitting for the portrait as her left leg was drawn up underneath her , and Manet would not let her alter its position.
