Cals, Salon

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Adolphe-Félix Cals (1810-1880)

A thematical impression of his paintings

at the Salon



Here you will find an impression of the art-works Adolphe-Félix Cals exhibited at the Salon from 1835 – 1870. See link for my account. Many of my suggestions are (very) uncertain or just to compare. I render also several drawings which might indicate how a painting looked like. For many exhibited works I have no suggestion at all. The works of Cals are not well documented, there is no catalogue raisonnée and most of his works are in private hands. I render the pictures in a sort of thematical way and by form. Several suggestions are interchangeable.
My main sources for the pictures are the-athenaeum (iR2; 13 pictures), commons.wikimedia (=iR6; 10 pictures), mutualart (iR11), artnet (iR13; 310 auction items), eclecticlight (aR1=iR35; 10 pictures) and Google images (iR10). See for the other sources at the bottom of the main page on Adolphe-Félix Cals. See link for explanation of the subscriptions. 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!
