Most of his pictures

a thematical overview

 

Pictures of Antoine-Ferdinand Attendu scraped together:
What pictures are known of Ferdinand Attendu? What pictures did he exhibit at the Salon (=S), it’s successor the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français (=SdAF), at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 (=1IE-1874), at the auction at Hôtel Drouot in 1895 (=HD1895/05/09) and at other exhibitions? When you search on the internet you can find many pictures of Ferdinand Attendu. Works sold throughout the world on auctions and in galleries. Often the quality of these pictures is very poor and more than once detailed information is only avaible for (paying) subscribers. Sometimes the used medium isn’t clear either. Fortunately Ferdinand Attendu mostly signed his works, which makes identification more positive. Most works are not dated. Most works are small and made on panel / wood.
On this page I will render most of the pictures I could find, as well as titles from catalogues. I will render them thematically. Most of the works are (kitchen) still lifes. When possible I will indicate if a work could have been exhibited, but this is very hard to do, see also my account. For more information see the main page on Antoine-Ferdinand Attendu.
