An 1882 oil on canvas painting, Nice Harbour, by Berthe Morisot (1841-95), the French impressionist painter. Like many impressionists, Morisot was fond of seascapes as they lend themselves well to the technique of quick and bold brushstrokes painted plein air (open air) to capture the momentary play between light and colour. (Musée Marmottan Monet, Paris)
