Jean-Louis Forain (1852-1931)

Art-works 4th impressionist exposition 1879




Here you will find an impression of the 26 art-works Forain did exhibit at the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1879. Of 2 fans (no.103+4) and 2 screens (no.105+6) I could not find a picture. See also my account. My main sources for the pictures are (iR2), (iR11) and Wikimedia (iR6).  See for more sources at the bottom of the main page about Forain.
