Art History Lesson: Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot painting at Musee Marmottan Monet in Paris

Ever since I first visited Musée Marmottan-Monet in Paris, I have become obsessed with Berthe Morisot. She was one of a few female Impressionist painters, but among the best of them. With the intimate world she described on her paintings and fantastic painting style, she is a painter you should know about. That’s why this art history lesson is dedicated to that fascinating painter.

Summer was a frequent motif in many paintings throughout history. Starting in the Roman times, it was especially popular to show some of the allegories of different seasons in Renaissance and Baroque art. To celebrate the start of Summer here at the Culture Tourist, we curated some of the most beautiful paintings with a Summer theme in Art History for you. Enjoy!
