Edgar Degas (1834-1917)

Pictures 2nd impressionist exposition 1876

Catalogue numbers: 36-59


General introduction:

Here you will find an impression of the about 25 pictures that were shown by Degas at the second ‘impressionist’ exposition. Sometimes the identification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, seeSee here for an account (references, translations, info, discussion and locations on Google-maps). See here for the general references (=R) and here for references to internet pages (=iR). My main sources for the pictures were: (=iR2) and Google images (=iR10). I render the pictures thematically.
