Lively discussions on every second Thursday of the month feature books relating to Museum exhibitions, collections or other topical themes. This month’s selection is Growing Up with the Impressionist: The Diary of Julie Manet by the daughter of Impressionist artists Berthe Morisot and Edouard Manet. She offers fascinating insights into the lives of French painters, including Renoir, Degas, Monet, and Sisley, as well the 1896 state visit of Tsar Nicholas II and the Dreyfus Affair, which was then raging in France.
