Hear DMA curator Dr. Nicole Myers discuss highlights from the featured exhibition Berthe Morisot, Woman Impressionist. Through approximately 70 paintings, the exhibition traces the exceptional career of an artist who, against all odds, became a founding member of the Impressionist group. Using her figure paintings as a point of departure, this exhibition illuminates Morisot’s role as an essential player within the Parisian avant-garde and reevaluates her legacy.
This talk is part of Late Nights at the Dallas Museum of Art.
