Jeune Fille Au Manteau Vert (Girl in a Green Coat) is a quintessential Morisot piece with soft colors punctuated with jewel tones. The young woman is portrayed in her stylish verdant coat and appears to be either just arriving or leaving Morisot's Parisian apartment on rue Weber. The model was Marthe, a young Russian neighbor, and another oil depicting her, Young Women at their Toilet, by Morisot is in the famed Phillips Museum Collection in Washington DC.

The drawing study for this oil is in the Lehman collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is obvious that Morisot considered Jeune Fille Au Manteau Vert an important oil because she did two small watercolors and the Lehman collection drawing preparing for it. This painting is also illustrated in numerous books including the Wildenstein catalog raisonne and has been included in major museum retrospective's of Morisot's work at the Birmingham Museum of art and The North Carolina Museum of Art.
