Research into the important legacy left by Rouart and the publication in 2021 of the correspondence of the impressionist painter Berthe Morisot gave rise to the project for the exhibition Julie Manet, la mémoire impressioniste, presented by the Musée Marmottan-Monet, in Paris.

The focus of the exhibition is Julie Manet, the daughter of Morisot and Eugène Manet, who married the artist and collector Ernest Rouart. The exhibition, which opened on 19 October 2021 and runs until 20 March 2022, includes the work Boy with Cherries, by Édouard Manet, a painting acquired by Calouste Gulbenkian in 1910, originally owned by the painter’s family.
