Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:


of the

5th ‘impressionist’ exposition


What pictures were exhibited at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition?
In 1880 the ‘5me exposition de peinture‘ was held in Paris. This exposition is now mostly called the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition. There were 16 partakers. The catalogue rendered the numbers 1-232, but in reality there were much more art-works exhibibited, namely about 309. On this page you will find an accounted impression of these exhibited art-works, I render more than 280 pictures. 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!


On this page you find 282 suggestions for the about 309 art-works that were exhibited at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880. At least 2 works of Degas (probably) were not exhibited (catalogue no.33+34). Probably no.8 of Caillebotte wasn’t exhibited, instead he exhibited a portrait outside the catalogue (=hc).
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 (27x) I have no suggestion at all, namely for no. 158 + 167-1 + 169 (Jean-François Raffaëlli); 184 + 190 + 191 + 192 (Rouart); 193 + 194 + 196 + 197 + 198 + 199 + 201 + 203 + 204(1-4) + 205(1-4) + 206 (Tillot); 208 + 209 + 215 (Vidal); 227 + 231 + 232 (Zandomeneghi).
Helas, of several options I could only find a picture in black and white, namely no.16 of Caillebotte; no.46 of Forain; no.80 of Guillaumin; no.92 of Lebourg; nos. 105 +110 of Levert; no.117 of Morisot; nos. 144 +162 +177 +hc2 +hc3 of J.F. Raffaëlli; 191 + 192 (Rouart); no.213 of Vidal; no.226+230 of Zandomeneghi. The following suggestion given to compare are very weak: no.71 of Guillaumin, no.105 +109 +110 +111 (Levert) and no.160 of J.F. Raffaëlli. See the accounts of the partakers.
