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!

Berthe Morisot, an artist ahead of her time. Understood the weakness in overmodeling - the use of too many values to indicate form. Was careful to keep designs strong by maintaining simple values, establishing major areas as belonging in either the light or dark, and not invading those areas with needless or inappropriate values.
