Desboutin, expo 1876



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Marcellin Desboutin


At the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1876


Which art-works did Desboutin show in 1876?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the about 20 art-works that ‘Desboutin’ exhibited at the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1876 (catalogue numbers 60-72+hc1) (R2,p161). One painting was not in the catalogue (=hc), but I couldn’t find a picture. At least 12 works were dry point etchings. Of several assumed oil paintings, only etchings excit. All works depicted portraits / figures. For other works I render more than one option (to compare). See the link for an account. See link for an explanation of the subscriptions. See for the used sources below at the main page about Marcellin Desboutin. Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. On a smartphone or laptop you can also zoom in. Enjoy!
