The above painting, entitled Berthe Morisot with a Bouquet of Violets, is probably the most famous portrait ever done of her.  The artist, her good friend (and lover?) Edouard Manet, painted the picture in 1872.  Manet made a total of eleven oil portraits of Morisot.  In my opinion, this is the best of the lot!
