White Flowers in a Bowl: Berthe Morisot

White Flowers in a Bowl is an 1885 painting in the Impressionist style by the leading female French artist Berthe Morisot.

The picture depicts a still-life painting of a pitcher and a bouquet of white Chinese Aster flowers in a bowl set against a blue backdrop.

Berthe Morisot has been described by a critic as “one who is such a dedicated Impressionist that she wishes to paint the motion of even inanimate things” in reference to her still life paintings. She had a now famous portrait painted of her by Édouard Manet. She would later marry the famous artist’s brother and made paintings of him and their daughter.

Berthe Morisot’s White Flowers in a Bowl is located in the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
