Chicago Museum of Art: Paintings: Berthe Morisot

When I first saw this painting, I was sure it was a Manet.  It turns out that Berthe Morisot was an artist in her own right.  She was married to Eugene Manet (Manet's brother).  It was painted about 1882.  The woman in front is not known.   But, there is speculation that the girl in the straw hat, in the background to the right, is the artists 4 yr old daughter Julie.

It was a beautiful piece to see
