Portrait of Berthe Morisot (after Manet)

Acrylic on canvas 20x16". This is my copy of Edouard Manet's famous 1872 portrait of impressionist painter and model Berthe Morisot and is one of my favourite paintings, so much so that I had to have a go at painting it.

Five Stars, Bryan!
Your "Artist Statement" is short.
But your skills and talent are long.
You make better "copies" than Wunna-be.
And you give credit to the original artist.
You could've been somebody!
Life is not fair.
