Three portraits of Paule Gobillard by Morisot

Tuesday with Berthe Morisot!

Paule Gobillard (1867-1946) was the daughter of Yves and Theodore Gobillard, and the niece of Berthe Morisot (Yves was Berthe's older sister). Paule would become an accomplished post-impressionist painter, note her painting or perhaps copying in the top image, and would eventually become a full member of the Salon (1906).
