General introduction:

Here you will find an impression of the 24 à 26 pictures that were shown by Degas at the 4th ‘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: the-athenaeum.org (=iR2), Google images (=iR10) and magrasku.de (=iR59).
