Tribute to Berthe Morisot

Most people know the image made by Manet. I’ve been so attached to it that I’ve drawn it many times. I know that the model was Berthe Morisot, what I didn’t know at first was that she was a painter in her own right. So I started redrawing her pieces.

It only occurred to me recently that there mayb some photographs of her on the web. They’re probably very low resolution, damaged, scratched… but what the heck, that’s what I love to repair.

I didn’t find a lot right off, but I found enough to keep me busy for a few hours.

The following is a link to a YouTube movie that I made from the folder of images that I made. I certainly won’t use most of the images, it’s just play. But a couple are pretty interesting.
