Starting page




Starting in 1874 and ending in 1886 there were eight group expositions held in Paris. These expositions were independent from the official Paris Salon-des-Beaux-Arts. Nowadays these expositions are known as the ‘impressionist’ expositions and they had an important influence on art-history.
In this page you will find links to info about these expositions, the eight catalogues, the partaking artists (with links to the exhibited paintings) and overviews of used techniques. (Note: most of the pages on the used techniques are not yet active = -/-).
