She was a great impressionist female painter. She exhibited her works together with Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and all the great ones.
Monet himself was who motivated her to join Impressionism and Marie —a quality painter already— got involved in it.
Why her name is not well-known, or there are not many works of her? Because her husband, the painter Félix Bracquemond, opposed to her involvement in Impressionism and his critique was so harsh that convinced her of abandoning her career.
The paradox is that he, and his work, are known today because he was married to a great painter, although she only shone for an instant.
