The Quay – Berthe Morisot

Go up the steps leading to the bank of the river.
The artist used to set herself up on a small boat in the middle of the branch in the river to paint the quay, from where there was a rather unique viewpoint.

This canvas, with a vertical format, shows Berthe Morisot’s, fluid painting style with its rapid strokes, the subject being captured from life as if through a photographic lens, almost as if the canvas had been left in sketch form.
The house with the sloping roof and the boundary stones of the steps leading down to the Seine can be recognised.

Berthe Morisot, The Quay, 1883, Nasjonalmuseet, Oslo, Norway
