Dulwich Picture Gallery has done it again, as I don't think I have ever been to one of their shows and thought 'so what?'
The latest show is a fabulously curated collection of Berthe Morisot's work. A female painter in a world of men, where painting in certain environments was forbidden, she made good use of her own home as studio interspersed with early morning trips to the park. A self portrait of Berthe in her mid-twenties is at middle top here:
The clever thing about this show is how it's interspersed with paintings that are said to have inspired her. Hence, you'll see Tissot, Romney, Gainsborough and quite a few Fragonards here.
It's also worth noting that there are few works from The Wallace Colllection, an institution that I understand has never before loaned out any of its collection.
Until 10 September – More information here.
