This drypoint shows Berthe Morisot and Eugène Manet’s daughter, Julie. Morisot based her drypoint on Renoir’s painting Child with a Cat (1887, Musée d’Orsay). However, she eliminated the setting in the painting, focusing only on Julie and the cat. Morisot produced only eight drypoints between 1888 and 1890, when she experimented with printmaking. Her interest in the medium may have come from her close friendship with Mary Cassatt, who was working with drypoint at this time.
