Young Woman Seated on a Sofa

ANSWER


Born in Bourges, Cher, France into a successful bourgeois family who encouraged her and her sister Edma Morisot in their exploration of art, Berthe Morisot demonstrated the possibilities for women in avant-garde art movements at the end of the 19th century. She was born in a family that included one of the most prolific Rococo painters of the ancient regime, Fragonard whose handling of color and expressive, confident brushwork influenced later painters. Despite the fact that as a woman she was not allowed to join official arts institutions, she earned respect in art circles for their talent.
