Julie Manet and nanny by Carat, ca. 1879

Julie Manet (November 14, 1878 – July 14, 1966) was a French painter and art collector.

Born in Paris, Julie Manet was the daughter and only child of artist Berthe Morisot and Eugène Manet, younger brother of painter Édouard Manet: she was therefore the niece of Manet. The death of both parents within a three-year period left her orphaned at the age of 16. As a result, she came under the guardianship of the poet/critic Stéphane Mallarmé and went to live with her cousins. She also received support from the family’s artist friends, Renoir in particular.
