(I am very much aware that this list is incomplete as well as terribly West-centric. This is a problem I’ve been trying to address, and one of the ways I can do this is by asking for help so, dear followers, if you know of any women artists, particularly women of colour and non-Western women who could be added to that list, please drop me a line.)

Paule Gobillard Painting (1886). Berthe Morisot (French, 1841-1895). Oil on canvas. Musée Marmottan Monet.

Morisot’s sister Yves displayed unusual talent for art, although she very early abandoned it as a serious pursuit. Yves’ daughter Paule Gobillard inherited both talent and ambition. She was often to be found working with Morisot in her home and studio. When Yves died in 1893 Paule and her younger sister Jeanne moved in for a time with their aunt Berthe and their cousin Julie Manet.

The hat
Paulette Gobillard is pinning flowers on the hat of Julie Manet.
Julie Manet, Paule and Jeannie Gobillard had already moved to the same appartment on the Rue Villejust, as suggested by Berthe Morisot in her final letter to Julie.
From a distance, Renoir helped the orphaned nieces when needed.
