Catalogue numbers: 37-61+hc



Here you will find an impression of the 26 pictures that were shown by Degas at the 3rd ‘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 source for the pictures was (=iR2). I render the pictures thematically.
