an impression of his exhibited paintings


Which pictures did Guillaumin show in 1881?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the pictures that were shown by Armand Guillaumin at the 6th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1881. He exhibited 16 works (catalogue numbers 40-55), including 5 pastels and 1 watercolour. Most works were landscapes made in Paris and it’s surroundings villages. 5 works were portraits of which I render just 3 suggestions. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!


Note: I couldn’t find a suggestion for 3 portraits, no. 48+51+53. See the link for an account of my choices (with references, info, discussion, location on Google-maps). My main sources are Moffett (=R2), 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.
