Forain, 1880 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Jean-Louis Forain (1852-1931)

An impression of his art-works

At the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880



On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 12 art-works Forain did exhibit at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880 (catalogue numbers 45-54); 8 of them 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. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
