What pictures were shown at the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition?
In 1876 the ‘2e exposition de peinture‘ was held in Paris. This exposition is now mostly called the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition. There were 19 partakers. The catalogue rendered the numbers 1-252, but in reality there were about 298 art-works exhibited. Several techniques / media were used. On this page you will find 218 pictures of these exhibited art-works. See the accounts of the partakers 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!

 

Clarification:
On this page you find 218 suggestions for the about 298 art-works that were exhibited at the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1876. The catalogue numbers 52+56 of Degas probably 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. Sometimes (80x) I have no suggestion at all, namely nos. 5 +6 +7 +8 (Béliard), nos. 11 +13 +15 +16 (Bureau); nos. 72+hc (Desboutin), nos. 73 +74 +75 +76 +77 + 78 +79 +80 (Jacques François), no. 83-5-2 (Legros), nos. 93 +94 +95 +96 +97 +98 +99 +100 +101 (Levert), nos. 102 +104 +110 +111 +114 +115 +116 +118 +121 +123 +124-2 +124-3 +124-4 +124-5 +125 +126-2 +127-2 +129 +130 +131 +133 (Lepic), nos. 141 +142 +145 +146 +147 (J.B. Millet), nos. 183 +184 +185 +186 +188 +190 +191 +193 +194 +195-1 +195-2 +195-4 +195-5 +195-6 +196-1 +196-2 +196-3 (Léon Ottin), nos.233 + 236 (Rouart), nos. 245 +246 +247 +248 +249 +250 +251 +252 (Tillot). Helas, of several options I could only find a picture in black and white, namely no.31 of Cals; nos. 60 +63 +66 of Desboutin; nos. 124 +126 +128 of Lepic; no.140+144 of J.B. Millet; no.164 of Monet; nos. 167 +169 of Morisot; no.232 of Rouart. The following works I render to compare are insufficient: no.235 of Rouart. See the accounts of the partakers.
