The Berest sisters offer us a jointly-written and enlightening portrait — where no history book of note mentions this figure from the world of art — of this legendary and mystical ancestor. A kind of obvious subject that entered their lives four years ago. Like a posthumous incitement to document the romantic life of this woman who can only be defined as one of a kind. She had a strong personality, was erudite, independent and breathed much-needed new life into the work of the impressionist artist. She made him paint emotions.
