Degas 1886 expo


Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Edgar Degas


At the 8th impressionist exposition in 1886

an impression of his exhibited art-works



General introduction:
Though the catalogue (nos: 14-28) indicate that Degas exhibited 15 art-works, he probably did show just 10 pastels. See link for an account. Number 17 and 18 maybe weren’t exhibited and though not indicated in the catalogue no.18 probably was a pastel. Particular was the serie of nudes that Degas exhibited. There are 6 activities mentioned in the catalogue of women doing there toilet. There were many reviews, but still it is unclear how many works Degas did exhibited and which. Maybe 2 or 3 works were not exhibited. Here you will find an impression of the about art-works that were shown by Degas at the 8th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1886. Sometimes the identification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. For explanation of the subscriptions, see. See for the used sources at the bottom of the main page about Edgar Degas. I render the pastels in order of the catalogue numbers. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. On a smartphone or laptop you can also zoom in. Enjoy!
