an impression of his pictures


Which pictures did Caillebotte exhibit in 1879?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 25+4hc=29 pictures that Gustave Caillebotte showed at least at the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1879 in Paris (catalogue numbers 7-31+4hc). Among them were 6 pastels, 7 works depicted Canoers and 9 portraits. I render the pictures by form and in a more thematical way. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a group) and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!



This was the first time that Caillebotte showed such a large amount of pictures, including 6 pastels. At least 4 works were not noted in the catalogue (=hc). Note: I will also render a 5th suggestion of a work exhibited outside the catalogue, but probably it was not exhibited at all. Most suggestions are (quite) certain, some are uncertain. Sometimes (to compare) I render an extra option. See the links for an account, the identification of paintings, the subscriptions. For the used sources at the bottom of the main page about Gustave Caillebotte.
