Jean-Louis Forain (1852-1931)

Here you will find an impression of the 12 art-works Forain did exhibit at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1880, including two works that were not in the catalogue (=hc). See also my account. My main sources for the pictures are (iR2), (iR11) and (iR41).  See for more sources at the bottom of the main page about Forain. See link for explanation of the subscription of the paintings.
