What art-works did Forain show in 1879?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 26 art-works Jean-Louis Forain showed 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. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!


For no.105+106 I couldn’t find an option made by Forain. To compare I render two folded screens made by another artist, to give any impression that Forain also showed two screens.


Many suggestions are uncertain or just to compare, see. Sometimes I render more than one option. For no.105+106 I couldn’t find an option. See link for an account. See for the sources at the bottom of the main page about Forain. See link for explanation of the subscription of the paintings.
