Berthe Morisot. The Great Woman Impressionist


Ordrupgaard has shown an exhibition devoted to one of the most widely recognized and ambitious painters of French art in the second part of the 19th Century, the great woman Impressionist Berthe Morisot (1841-1895).


The exhibition was dedicated to Morisot’s enchanting world of motifs from her immediate surroundings as well as her Impressionist development covering a period from the beginning of 1870s to her death in 1895. The exhibition at Ordrupgaard was the first exhibition in Denmark in 50 years to focus exclusively on Berthe Morisot and her impressive, Impressionist imagery.


Berthe Morisot. The Great Woman Impressionist was given an overwhelming reception by the press. The newspaper Weekendavisen wrote: “The exhibition at Ordrupgaard is concentrated quality, both artistically and communicationwise. Don’t miss it.” And the newspaper Jyllandsposten wrote: “Ordrupgaard stays true to its exhibition policy and delivers a fine piece of communicative work.”


The exhibition was supported by:


Knud Højgaards Fond, Ludvig og Sara Elsass Fond,

Oticon Fonden, Konsul George Jorck og Hustru Emma Jorck’s Fond,

Beckett-Fonden, Lizzie og Ejler Ruges Kunstfond
