Bureau pictures

Pierre(-Isidore) Bureau (1822-1876)




I found less than 10 pictures of Pierre-Isidore Bureau:

In books on Impressionism only Walther shows a work of Bureau (R3,p55). On the internet Wikimedia renders 2 pictures of Bureau (iR6), the-Athenaeum 3 (iR2), eclecticlight 4 (aR1), theartstack 3 (iR68), Joconde 3 (iR23), Google-images 7, including a rare one (iR10). Artnet mentions auctions of 3 works without rendering a picture (see below; iR13). Yet most sources render the same paintings so in total I found less than 10 works of Bureau.
In the subscriptions I will give suggestions which works were exhibited at the ‘impressionist’ expositions in 1874 and 1876 and at the Salon. See link for an account. For explanations and sources see at the bottom of the main page about Bureau.
