exhibited in 1874 and 1877



General introduction:
On this page you will find on impression of the pictures that were shown by Armand Guillaumin at the first ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 and at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877. (He didn’t participate in 1876.) In 1874 he exhibited 3 paintings. Maybe ‘Le Soir’ was the most impressionist painting exhibited in 1874, with it’s vibrating sky en slightly unnatural colours. In 1877 Guillaumin exhibited 12 paintings, 11 of them landscapes made to the south-west of Paris and 1 nude.

My main sources are Moffett (=R2), Dayez (=R87), Berson (R90I+II), Budde (R179) and the Catalogue Raisonné by made by Serret & Fabiani (=CR=R124). For the other sources, also of the pictures, see at the bottom of the main page on Armand Guillaumin. Very often the indentification of a painting is ‘uncertain’. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, see hereSee link for the locations where Guillaumin did paint.
