“The Harbor At Lorient”

Berthe Morisot (1841-1895)
The Harbor At Lorient
National Gallery Of Art, Washington

Oil On Canvas
16 7/8 Inches By 28 5/16 Inches


I have never been particularly fond of Berthe Morisot artworks, but this small painting, which I have seen, is exquisite.

The painting was a special favorite of the Mellon family, which donated the canvas—as well as thirteen other Morisot artworks—to the National Gallery Of Art.
