Berthe Morisot was a painter and a member of the circle of painters in Paris who became known as the Impressionists. In 1864, she exhibited for the first time in the highly esteemed Salon de Paris. Sponsored by the government, and judged by academicians, the Salon was the official, annual exhibition of the AcadÃ©mie des beaux-arts in Paris. Her work was selected for exhibition in six subsequent Salons until, in 1874, she joined the "rejected" Impressionists in the first of their own exhibitions, which included Paul CÃ©zanne, Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley. It was held at the studio of the photographer Nadar. She became the sister-in-law of her friend and colleague, Ã‰douard Manet, when she married his brother, EugÃ¨ne. Personal life: Bertha married Eugene at 33, on 12/22/1874, but refused to take her husband's name. Eugene was a lawyer who was not ambitious enough to practice, but it turned out to be a favorable match. She gave birth to her daughter Julie Manet, born when she was nearly 38. She treasured the child and painted her many times. Bertha died 2 March 1895 in Paris, France.
