Where did Guillaumin paint?

Guillaumin painted in Paris.
Including from east to west on the left / south bank of the Seine the Quai de la Gare, the Quai d’Austerlitz, near Gare d’Austerlitz, the Quai Saint-Bernard, along the Sarbonne and at the end the Pont de Sully (note: some works are called Quai Sully). And at the opposite right / north bank of the Seine from east to west the Quai de Bercy,  near Gare de Lyon, the Quai de la Rapée, the Quai Henri IV, till the Pont de Sully, the Quai des Célestins, ending at the Pont Marie, which leads to Île Saint-Louis, the Quai de Gesvres, north of Île de la Cité. On the south side of Île Saint-Louis, the Quai d’Orléans,

 

Guillaumin painted in Île-de-France, the region around Paris.
Including from west to east: Billancourt, west of Paris; Issy, south-west of Paris; Clamart, south of Issy; Fontenay-aux-Roses, lies east of Clamart; Vanves, just south of Paris; Châtillon, just south of Paris; Ivry, just south-east of Paris; Charenton, just east of Paris;. Palaiseau lies about 23km south of Paris. Epinay-sur-Orge lies about 25km south of Paris.

The first ‘impressionist’ exposition 1874:

  • catalogue numbers 64-66
  • in total Guillaumin exhibited 3 works.
    • 1x indication of place
    • 3x indication of time, season or weather
    • 0x a study
    • 1x loans (appartient à…).
  • See for the suggestions of Moffett (R2,p120) and Dayez (R87,p238)
1874 catalogue:

1874-64          Le Soir, paysage
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion.

1874-65          Temps pluvieux, paysage
Moffett suggests with a perhaps 1871, CR10, La Seine à Paris, 126×181, MFA Houston (R2,p128). But this work doesn’t depict any rain, so I doubt if this was a good suggestion. Armand Silvestre (1874/04/22) writes: ‘I have received no richer impressions than those from Temps pluvieux by Guillaumin.’ (R2,p128)

1874-66          Soleil couchant à Ivry ; appartient à  M. le docteur Gachet
Moffett suggests CR20, a work now in the Musée d’Orsay, probably the same that Dayez suggests: 1873, Soleil couchant à Ivry. Marc de Montifaud (1874/05/01) praises him for his vibrant colours. He names ‘Le soir’, but describes ‘Soleil couchant’ by writing about ‘the intensity of the sunset’ and ‘dense smoke’. (R87,p267).

 

The 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition 1877:

Huysmans (1883) writes about this and other works: ‘Guillaumin, too, is a colorist, and what is more, a ferocious one. At first sight his canvases are a confusion of battling tones and rough contours, a cluster of vermilion and Prussian blue zebra stripes. Step back and blink and everything falls into place; the planes become steady, and the strident tones calm. The hostile colors reconcile themselves, and you are astonished by the unexpected delicacy of certains parts of these paintings. his Quai de la Rapée above all is especially surprising from this point of view. ‘ R2,p365).
