Forain, 1879 expo


Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Jean-Louis Forain


An impression of his art-works

at the 4th impressionist exposition in 1879



On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 26 art-works Forain did exhibit at the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1879 (catalogue numbers 82-107); 18 of them were indicated as aquarelles; there were 4 fans, 2 screens and 1 drawing; 19 were loans. Sometimes I render more than one option. So, I will render 4 uncertain options for the fans and to compare I render 4 later works. See also my account. See for the sources at the bottom of the main page about Forain. See link for explanation of the subscription of the paintings. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
