During the summer of 1881, Julie Manet's parents, Berthe Morisot (1841-1895) and Eugène Manet (1834-1892), moved to the Paris suburb of Bougival on the Seine, 10 miles from the center of Paris, believing that the climate there would be best for her. Julie (1878-1966) was born on November 14, 1878; her then 37-year-old mother had married her father 3 years earlier. Her parents first met in the late 1860s around the time that her mother met his older brother, painter Édouard Manet, at the Louvre. Édouard asked Berthe to model for him soon afterwards and, with Berthe's mother as chaperone, painted her often and in various poses—so often that questions were raised about the propriety of their relationship. Despite such rumors, Édouard was an ardent supporter of Berthe's marriage to Eugène.
