1. Reading (La Lecture), 1888. Berthe Morisot (French, 1841–1895). Oil on canvas. Museum of Fine Arts, St. Petersburg, Florida.

    Morisot’s work is often unjustly characterized as feminine. Jeanne Bonnet was the model for this painting. The artist used thick, bold brushstrokes to apply complementary colors of soft tones in blues and greens with touches of red, blue, and yellow. An important member of the Impressionist movement and equally respected by her peers, her style is no more feminine than that of Renoir.
