This title will accompany the first ever exhibition dedicated to Julie Manet –the only daughter of Berthe Morisot and the niece of Édouard Manet– that will be held from October 19, 2021 to March 20, 2022 at Musée Marmottan Monet Paris. It offers an exhaustive description of Julie Manet’s life, work and art collection, and a new and richly detailed account of her role in the life of the arts. The book will cover several aspects of the artist’s life and work, from early beginnings to Julie Manet’s role as a collector with her husband Ernest Rouart. Drawing on previously unpublished sources, some of them discovered by the authors themselves in the course of their research, this book constitutes a definitive account of the life of Julie Manet and her entourage that brings the whole world of the arts and culture in late 19th-century and early 20th-century Paris back to life.
