The Consequence of Impression

by DS Magid

directed by Brian Gillespie


Between 1868 and 1874, Édouard Manet paints Berthe Morisot nearly two dozen times. Then she marries his brother.

The Consequence of Impression is an allegory for the modern woman’s dilemma – how to have it all, or if that’s even possible. Manet's portraits reveal Morisot's passion and lively intelligence, inspiring a century of speculation by art lovers and critics alike about the true nature of their relationship. In swift, Impressionist brushstrokes from a palette of historical correspondence, journals, and artworks, The Consequence of Impression illuminates an artist’s coming-of-age.
