Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:


of the

7th ‘impressionist’ exposition



In 1882 the ‘7me exposition de peinture‘ was held in Paris. This exposition is now mostly called the 7th ‘impressionist’ exposition. There were only 9 partakers. The catalogue rendered the numbers 1-203, but in reality there were about 212 art-works exhibited. On this page you will find 211 pictures of these exhibited art-works. See the accounts of the partaking artists and the clarification at the bottom of this page. If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. On a smartphone or laptop you can also zoom in. Enjoy!


On this page you find 211 suggestions for the about 212 art-works that were exhibited at the 7th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1882. The numbers 123 + 124 of Pissarro weren’t exhibited.
Note: the given suggestions vary from certain (=!), to almost certain (=?!), to uncertain (=?), to very uncertain (=??), to most uncertain (=???), to compare (=compare:) with another work of the artist, to compare with a similar work from another artist or even a photo. Sometimes (?x) I have no suggestion at all, namely no.38 (Guillaumin). Helas, of several options I could only find a picture in black and white, namely nos. 6 +7 +9 +13 of Caillebotte; no.28+30 of Gauguin; no.35 of Guillaumi; no.98 of Morisot; no.126+134 of Pissarro; no.175 of Sisley; nos. 191 +200 +201 of Zandomeneghi. The suggestion to compare for no.203 of Vignon is very weak. See the accounts of the partaking artists. See link for an explanation of the subscriptions.
