Madame Théodore Gobillard (Yves Morisot, 1838–1893)

Edgar Degas French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 815

Berthe Morisot's eldest sister is shown in the living room of her family's house in Paris in this unfinished portrait by Degas. Preceded by several preparatory studies, including two drawings and a pastel, which are also in the Museum's collection, the work was favored by Mary Cassatt, who remarked: "It is much in the style of a Vermeer and quite as interesting, very quiet and reposeful. It is a beautiful picture."
