Great Artists: Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt
September 16, 2022
2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
When the second Impressionist exhibition opened in the spring of 1876, a critic described its participants as ‘five or six lunatics, one of which is a woman.’ That woman was Berthe Morisot, sister-in-law of Edouard Manet and wife of Eugene Manet, who recognizing her enormous talent and drive sacrificed his own art career to support her.
Only one American artist ever exhibited in the Impressionist Exhibitions in Paris. That artist was American Mary Cassatt who had trained in France and was recognized by Edgar Degas, among others, as being exceptional.
Artist and instructor, Tom Friedman, will discuss at the lives and art of these two women Impressionist Masters and discuss a bit about the obstacles imposed by society when they worked. Hybrid class, in person at the TSC and on Zoom.
