  • Young Woman Knitting, ca. 1883
    Berthe Morisot (French, 1841–1895)
    Oil on canvas; 19 3/4 x 23 5/8 in. (50.2 x 60 cm)
    Signed (lower left): Berthe Morisot
    Bequest of Miss Adelaide Milton de Groot (1876–1967), 1967 (67.187.89)

    Morisot, who exhibited with the Impressionists between 1874 and 1886, painted a number of figures out-of-doors in which she tried to achieve the same informal and spontaneous appearance as her watercolors and pastels. The light palette and the modeling of form through touches of color in this work of about 1883 are characteristic.
