    (January 14, 1841-March 2, 1895)
    Born in Bourges, France
    Impressionist painter
    Sister-in-law of Edouard Manet
    Paintings include 'The Cradle' (1872), 'Reading' (1872), 'Lady at Her Toilette' (1875), 'Edouard Manet on the Isle of Wight' (1875), 'Summer Day' (1879), 'Woman with a Muff' (1880), 'Child Among the Hollyhocks' (1881) and 'Girl Arranging Her Hair' (1886)
    She confined her paintings to the back room of her house so she could be a conventional society hostess in the front parlor.
    She suffered periods of depression and self-doubt.
    She made catty remarks about Manet's stout wife.
    Unlike most of her fellow Impressionists, her paintings had been regularly accepted at the establishment Salon exhibitions.
    After the critic for the newspaper 'Figaro' dismissed the Impressionists as lunatics, he admitted that Morisot 'manages to convey a certain degree of feminine grace in spite of her outbursts of delirium.'
    Her portrait 'After Lunch' sold for $10.9 million at Christie's, setting a record as the most expensive work by a female artist sold at auction (2013).
