Berthe’s daughter, Julie Manet

Playing in the Sand


Berthe Morisot
(French, 1841–1895)

Throughout her lifetime, Berthe created many paintings of her daughter, Julie Manet. She painted Julie during many periods of her daughter’s life, up until Marisot’s death in 1895.

Paintings of Julie sometimes caught her in the act of playing as a child, portraits, and even a painting of her playing violin.

Julie herself grew up to be a painter, model, diarist, and art collector.
