Félix Bracquemond, 1880 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Félix Bracquemond


at the 5th impressionist exposition 1880

an impression of his exhibited art-works


On this page you will find an accounted impression of the art-works Félix Bracquemond exhibited at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1880. He exhibited 1 drawing and a serie of etchings, according to Burty around 20, I assume 25.  See my account and the explanation at the bottom of this page. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a cluster) and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!





The title in the catalogue for no.5 was ‘Eaux-fortes pour décoration de services de faïence et de porcelaine’ (Eng.: Etchings for decoration of earthenware and porcelain services). Probably Bracquemond exhibited prints of the 25 etchings he had made for the Rousseau dinner service: ‘Motifs pour le décor d’un service de table en faïence de la maison Rousseau’ (Motifs for the decoration of an earthenware dinner service from the house of Rousseau). I found most of the prints at gallica.bnf.fr  (aR9=iR40). I reworked all the pictures, added English titles and sometimes rotated them. I render the horizontal and the vertical pictures together. In the subscriptions I render the number from the Beraldi catalogue of 1885, no.B530-B554 (=R85=aR14) and the number of the Rousseau plates, 1-25. (I wonder if the numbers 2 and 5 and also 15 and 22 are interchanged (already by Beraldi). See my account. Other sources for the pictures are the NYPL digital collection (=aR1=iR61), commons.wikimedia (=iR6) and Google images (iR10). See for the other sources at the bottom of the main page on Félix Bracquemond. See link for explanation of the subscriptions.
