4524 P-L. Discovered 1960 Sept. 24 by C. J. van Houten and I. van Houten-Groeneveld at Palomar.

Named in memory of Berthe Morisot (1841-1895), important French impressionistic painter. Her teachers were Guichart and Camille Corot {see planet (6672)} and later Edouard Manet. In turn, she influenced Manet to paint landscapes outside, rather than to make sketches first and paint the landscapes in the studio. Morisot was a specialist in oil and water colors of natural family life. (M 27463)
