Berthe Morisot Affirmation Teacup


French painter Berthe Morisot exhibited work in all but one of the impressionist exhibits alongside her peers Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and Edgar Degas, yet her work remains relatively unfamiliar to museum audiences today. The sister-in-law of painter Édouard Manet, she kept a collection of his teacups, which she passed down to her daughter Julie.

Morisot wrote of her work as an artist, “I don’t think there has ever been a man who treated a woman as an equal, yet that’s all I would have asked for, because I know I am of equal worth.”

This one-of-a-kind repurposed vintage teacup celebrates the work and the equality of female artists throughout history.
