Introduction: On this page you will find an thematical impression of the paintings that Edouard Brandon exhibited at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 (=1IE-1874). To give an wider impression, I render several options also relating to works he exhibited at the Salon (=S) and at the Salon de la Société National des Beaux-Arts (=SNBA), at the posthumous auction at Hôtel Drouot (=HD1897/12/13) and at other exhibitions. I render the works a bit thematical. Many suggestions are (very) uncertain or just given to compare. Many suggestions are also interchangeable, see the thematical overview of his pictures and the works he exhibited at the Salon and other exhibitions. See link for explanation of the subscriptions and my account. For info on the sources see at the bottom of this page and the main page about Edouard Brandon. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a group of pictures) and then click on full screen, you can create a small slideshow. Enjoy!
