See the link for an account of my choices (with references, info, discussion, location on Google-maps). 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.
