Her work has taken Salon - the official mouthpiece of the academic style, but later abandoned the artist exhibited there in support of the Impressionists. Light, elegant technique and lyrical atmosphere of her work soon attracted the attention of Edouard Manet, leader of the opposition academicism. Berthe Morisot quickly became a favorite in the circle of Manet and in 1874 she married Manet's younger brother - Eugene. At this time, she often posed for Manet, who created several portraits of the artist. Bright colors work Morisot, such paintings as Woman of a toilet (approximately. 1875, Chicago Art Institute) and the girl with a basket (1892, private collection), influenced the palette of Manet and the impact on the brightness of the light effects of his landscapes.
