Félix Bracquemond, 1880 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Félix Bracquemond (1833-1914)

An impression of his art-works

at the 5th impressionist exposition 1880



Here you will find an impression of the art-works Félix Bracquemond exhibited at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1880. He exhibited 1 drawing and a series of etchings, according to Burty around 20. The title in the catalogue 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. Enjoy!
