Although primarily confined to the domestic sphere, female artists successfully utilized the Impressionist style to gain unprecedented entry into the world of the avant-garde. While Impressionist painting was purportedly the realm of the male flâneur, Baudelaire’s declaration of support for “the painting of modern life” bolstered a renewed interest in the once-overlooked production of genre paintings. Kathleen Adler and Tamar Garb attest to this dynamic shift between style and content: “With the conscious rejection of historical narrative painting and large-scale figure compositions by avant-garde critics and artists, genre painting could be elevated to the ‘painting of modern life’ and proclaimed as the painting of the new age. The meaning of the depiction of everyday life, long the concern of genre painters, albeit with some didacticism, was transformed through an alteration of technique… Those who adopted Impressionist techniques to represent contemporary life, on the other hand, were seen by sympathetic critics and artists to be making an intervention against the restrictive subjects, styles, and meanings promoted by the academy” (Kathleen Adler & Tamar Garb, Berthe Morisot, Oxford, 1987, p. 85). 

Like her female contemporaries Mary Cassatt and Eva Gonzalès, Morisot was prohibited from the majority of public spaces and was confined to the sites prescribed by her class and gender. Although Morisot willingly, and, by all accounts, very graciously fulfilled the social and familial obligations expected of a woman of station in late-nineteenth century France, for the first twenty-five years of the Third Republic she persevered to produce images that focused on both her own world and subjects from modern life. While male Impressionists such as Camille Pissarro painted such works by choice, interior scenes and still lifes provided one of the few windows into the avant-garde for their female counterparts (see fig. 1). Ultimately, Morisot’s limitation to a private female domain spurred a deeper examination of those environments available within the confines of her sex, capturing the act of looking and recording life in progress from her personal point of view.
