Julie Manet, the daughter of Édouard Manet and the most famous female Impressionist artist, Berthe Morisot, was born in Paris on 14th November 1878 into a wealthy and cultured milieu at the height of the Impressionist era. Many young girls still confide their inner thoughts to diaries, and it is hardly surprising that, with her mother giving all her encouragement, Julie would prove to be no exception to the rule.

Her extraordinary diary?newly translated here by Jane Roberts, an expert of Impressionism?reveals a vivid depiction of a vital period in France’s cultural history, seen through the youthful and precocious eyes of the youngest member of what was surely the most prominent artistic families of the time. Her notes provide fascinating insights into the lives of French painters, including Renoir, Degas, Monet, and Sisley.
