What art-works did Forain show in 1880?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 12 art-works Jean-Louis Forain showed at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880 (catalogue numbers 45-54). Forain showed many aquarelles and gouaches. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!


8 art-works were probably not drawings, but watercolours / gouaches (no.47-52c) and 2 were etchings (no.53+54); number 52 consisted probably of at least 3 works. Sometimes I render more than one option. 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.
