Attacked by mourning, the tormented loves of Berthe Morisot and Stéphane Mallarmé
Between the painter and the poet was played for several years a singular love story, alternating ardent passion and suspended dream.
For the poet Stéphane Mallarmé, who suffered so much from the disappearance of his dear friend Edouard Manet in 1883, Berthe Morisot was never a substitute figure. It was a real passion. Complicated, full of secrets and desires, begun in the mid-1870s, in the light of Edouard Manet, and extended beyond the death of it.
