Berthe Morisot

Berthe Morisot

(1841 - 1895)
Born: Bourges, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • The Cradle (1872)
  • In the Wheatfield at Gennevilliers (1875)
  • Reading (1888)
Berthe Morisot was the great-granddaughter of the eighteenth-century painter Jean-Honore Fragonard as well as the sister-in-law of Édouard Manet. Morisot's family supported her decision to become a painter. In fact, Berthe's sister Edma was also a serious painter, and the siblings were fortunate enough to study under Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. Morisot's work was first displayed in the Salon de Paris when the artist was only twenty three years old; she would continue to show work at the Salon until the Impressionists broke away in 1873. By this time, Morisot had already forged a very important friendship with Édouard Manet, later marrying his brother, and there is evidence that the two painters contributed tremendously to one another artistically. Morisot was greatly influenced by Manet and frequently exhibited with other Impressionists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Auguste Renoir, and Paul Cézanne. Her work was included in the revolutionary show of 1874 that was organized in protest of the stale and unreceptive Salon. Morisot preferred to paint outdoors, creating loose compositions of active, open brushstrokes. The forms and figures are rendered not in a fussy, overdrawn manner, but instead demonstrate an exquisite, rapid touch. As a woman, Morisot was able to apply the impressionist's brush to subjects that were not often tackled by her male counterparts, including domestic scenes and fashion. Morisot completed many paintings of her daughter, sister, and mother situated in parks, cafés, or at the beach. Morisot's work expresses the Impressionists' desire to bring painting out of the conventional studios into the realm of everyday life, and to catch, in color, the informal way that we view the world.

These paints seem a little high priced.
- Darrel D in Elk River MN
After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.

I used Porcelaine 150 about 14 years ago on some glasses; they have been washed over and over in the dishwasher, and the color is still bright and beautiful. I did bake them in the oven as the directions specified. This is a great product!
