Cassatt 1880 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Mary Cassatt


at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880

an impression of her art-works


Which art-works did Mary Cassatt show in 1880?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the at least 18 art-works that Mary Cassatt showed at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880, including at least 10 engravings that were probably meant for the project ‘Le jour et la nuit’. All the works are portraits / figure paintings (catalogue numbers 17-32). Mark the softness and gentleness of no.20 and the palet of colours on the skin of no. 22. Note also the stronger indicated lines in no.21.
I render the pictures by format, theme (and number). Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!






Many suggestions are (quite) certain, some suggestions are (very) uncertain, sometimes I render another work to compare, see account. See links for the identification of paintings, the subscriptions and the sources at the bottom of the main page on Mary Cassatt.
