Cost: $110 Members, $132 Non-members
Cost includes Museum admission and a guided tour of exhibition Berthe Morisot: Woman Impressionist. Participants will be called with an exact departure time the week of the trip.
The bus will depart from the Creamery Lane Parking Lot, off of Aurora Street and across from the Easton Volunteer Fire Department.
Berthe Morisot (1841–1895), one of the major impressionists, worked alongside Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. This exhibition traces the exceptional path of a woman who defied the social norms of her time to join the Parisian avant-garde.
Through her portrayal of the human figure, Morisot explored impressionist themes of modernity: the intimacy of contemporary bourgeois living and family life, the taste for resorts and gardens, the importance of fashion, and women’s domestic work. Deliberately sketch- like and unfinished in appearance, her works are not an unmediated reflection of her daily environment: they address the temporality of representation itself in a careful capture of the world that attempts to “fix something of the passing moment.”
