But the longer I wait, the later it will be — and after all, I’m only fourteen….” Paris 1893 Thus writes the only child of Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot and Eugene (the younger brother of Edouard) Manet in 1893. In this year Julie Manet begins t he diary in which she record with a disarming frankness and a perception belying her age the things she sees and hears around her, aid in which she comments upon people and events from the world’s stage. Growing up as she does in the artistic and literary hothouse of Paris in the 1890s, the young Julie is able to describe the everyday life of the Impressionist painters and to reveal their often startling opinions. She is frequently in the company of Degas and Renoir, with whom she sketches and paints, and she visits Monet in Giverny. Charmingly illustrated throughout with Impressionist paintings, sketches, and old photographs depicting the personalities and places described in it.
