Morisot Reclining tells the story of Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet, whose contributions to painting in the nineteenth century shook the art world. It is structured around five portraits Manet painted of Morisot, each of which documents a different stage in their relationship, moving from mentor/student to a deep connection between lovers whose feelings were never consummated. Their relationship reaches its apex as Manet creates “Berthe Morisot Reclining,” a work of unrivalled sensuality that brings forth the passionate connection between two diverse personalities who could never fully acknowledge — nor escape — the force that bound them together.
