Berthe Morisot Manet Lille 2918.jpg

Berthe Morisot with a Fan is an 1874 painting by Édouard Manet. It is the last of twelve portraits Manet produced of Berthe Morisot between 1868 and 1874, painted just after her marriage to the painter's brother Eugène, after which she no longer posed for him.[1] It shows her dressed in mourning for her father but wearing an engagement ring.

It entered Morisot's own collection, possibly directly from the artist, before being donated to the French state in 1999. It was initially allocated to the Musée d'Orsay before being moved in 2000 to the Palais des Beaux-Arts de Lille, where it still hangs.[2]
