This work was not published during Morisot's lifetime; this edition was published in December 1907 in the Gazette des Beaux-Arts

Berthe Morisot was a founding member of the Impressionist group and exhibited regularly at their exhibitions. Although best known for her fresh, light-filled oil paintings, she also produced a number of etchings. Her favorite subjects were women in domestic settings.

This print is a self-portrait of the artist with her daughter.
