My Article on Berthe Morisot

For those who belong to The Portrait Society of America, check out my article on Berthe Morisot in the 2010-4th quarter Art of the Portrait Journal. I find her story inspiring, as she managed to combine a husband, a child and a career in a time when professional activities by an upper class woman were frowned upon, to say the least. Her mentor, Manet, once said it was a shame she was a woman and her contemporaries called her the "quintessential" impressionist.

Can you somehow post a LINK in your BLOG to the article?

Thanks for your interest - I checked the Portrait Society of America site where they usually publish the articles after the hard copies have gone out but the Cecilia Beaux Forum section is currently under renovation, so the article is not yet available online.
