Berthe Morisot – Female Impressionist
Berthe Morisot was a 19th century French painter in a talented group known as the Impressionists. She had a close acquaintance with Édouard Manet, another well-known impressionist painter, and married his brother, Eugene. Their daughter, Julie, became the subject of many of Berthe’s paintings. Probably because she was female, her work was undervalued for over a century. She is now considered among the most elite of the impressionists. Our SegPlayPC set contains 30 of her best works, which demonstrate her focus on the intimacy of family and domestic life. We’ve included The Cradle, Grain Field, The Harbor at Lorient, Chasing Butterflies, Summer Day, Young Girl with Cage, The Cheval Glass, The Dining Room, Mother and Sister of the Artist Reading and Woman at her Toilet.

Edward Bannister – African American Artist
Edward M. Bannister (1828 – 1901) was an African American artist in the late 19th century whose works focused on landscapes and seascapes, with an emphasis on pastoral subject matter. Although well known in his adopted home of Providence, Rhode Island, his talents were forgotten for over a century due to among other reasons, racial prejudice. We’ve pulled together a large collection of his works in this pattern set. There are some of his more recognized works included (Driving Home the Cows, The Doryman, Approaching Storm, Sabin Point). There are also many other examples of his landscape works, and also some still lifes, and a few portraits.

Coffee is a widely consumed beverage prepared from beans of the coffee plant. The beans are generally roasted and stored. When coffee is prepared, the beans are ground and then brewed which means that water is passed over the grounds absorbing their flavor. Our set of coffee patterns is based on a fun set of coffee-related illustrations which show people drinking coffee, as well as coffee machines, and coffee pitchers and cups.
