Overview loans per partaker



Several pictures that were exhibited at the eight impressionist expositions from 1874 – 1886 were loans of several owners. In the catalogue you will find the remark ‘appartient à M., Mme. of Mlle. X… (monsieur, madame, mademoiselle = mister, miss or misses X…). Many loaners are still unknown, the most important you’ll find here. In the PDF overview here below you can see which painter during which exposition had how many loans exhibited. You can see Degas, Forain, Monet and Pissarro had the most loans. Some artists who exhibited 5 or more times had no or just a few loans, like Caillebotte, Cals, Gauguin, Morisot, Rouart and Tillot. Were there works not appreciated? Didn’t they sell their paintings because they didn’t have to?
