Woman with a Fan. Portrait of Madame Marie Hubbard and Young Girl on the Grass. The Red Bodice (Mademoiselle Isabelle Lambert) will serve as a starting point for reflection on the place of female artists in Impressionism, and Morisot’s important contribution to the avant-garde of the late 19th century.
