International exhibitions

1870-1914

profiling on an international level

 

Introduction:
Since the 1880s thanks to a better railway system and post traffic, international exhibitions became more common (R5,p214). Works of  the partakers of the ‘impressionist’ expositions also were shown at several international exhibitions. In London from 1870-75. In New York in 1886. In Brussels at Les XX (1884-93) and at La Libre Estétique (1894-1914). At World Fairs/ Expositions Universelle and Centennial exhibitions. And also at exhibitions that were explicitly called “impressionist“. On this page you will find an overview of important international exhibitions, with a brief indication which ‘impressionists’ and related artists did exhibit. The exhibitions will be mentioned in an alphabetical order per country (and per city). The focus is on the years 1870 till 1900 and partly extended till 1914. In 1900 several of the ‘impressionists’ had died, many had found recognition, namely by having their works exhibited at the Exposition Universelle of 1900 in Paris.
We will see that the exhibitions were organised by independant groups of artists (maybe inspired by the ‘impressionist’ expositions), by galleries and by more official authorities. The art-works were sent in by 1. the artists themselves (and also posthumously by) 2. the art-dealer Durand-Ruel, 3. by other art-dealers and 4. as loans from art-collectors. So, often there was no direct partacipation of the ‘impressionist’ artist.

Great Britain: 

London:
In London there had been several exhibitions and galleries, where impressionist works were exhibited. There also were several independant groups of artists that held exhibitions. Lucien Pissarro, who had moved to England in 1890, was involved in many of these groups and exhibitions. In 1882 there was an “Exposition impressionniste”, in 1883 an exhibitions called “Paintings, drawings and pastels by Members of La Société des impressionnistes” and in 1884 the “Exposition de tableaux impressionnistes”. All these “impressionist” exhibitions were organised by Durand-Ruel.

1876/04, Deschamps gallery:
Art-dealer Deschamps exhibited works of Degas, Manet, Morisot and Sisley in London (R5,p94).

1885-1942+, New English Art Club (=NEAC):
The New English Art Club was founded in 1885 by Frederick Brown (1851-1941), George Claussen (1852-1944), Stanhope Forbes (1857-1947), Sidney Starr (1857-1925), Wilson Steer (1860-1942) and Henry Herbert la Thangue (1859-1929) (R3,p577). The club represented several art-mouvements including English Impressionists, including Walter Richard Sickert (1860-1942). Their first exhibition was held in 1886. In 1899 Whistler joined as member. In 1906 Lucien Pissarro joined (iR3;R55;R88), but already exhibited with them 1904 onwards (R88;iR14), untill (at least) 1942 (R312,p230;iR15;iR14). In 1906 it was the 35th exhibition of the NEAC (iR15;R125,no109). In 1920 they held their 61th exhibition (iR14;R125,no302). So it seems they held about two exhibitions a year, though Meadmore writes about their annual exhibition (held in 1921) (R312,p174). Lucien Pissarro wrote that the exhibition in the Spring of 1900 was a bad show.(R312,p60+91). 1891/11 Monet exhibited 1 work. 1893/04: Monet exhibited 1 work (R22IV,p1017 +?CR873 +?1234).

1908-1914, 19, Fitzroy Street Group:
There were weekly gaterings at 19, Fitzroy Street, (on Saterday afternoons) where Walther Sickert had a central role. Here a group was formed that painted together every week at an evening. Each member had the right to a picture rack in the studio to store their pictures and on Saturday afternoons they were exhibited to friends and guests. It was a centre that intended to enable artists to sell their works direct to the public, but there were few sales. Members were Robert Bevan, Harold Gilman (1878-1914), Sharles Ginner, Spencer Gore (1878-1914), Augustus John, Henry Lamb and Lucien Pissarro. When Lucien Pissarro had enough money he attended these meetings (at least in 1907), where he was greatly respected and seen as a guide. Several of those who attended exhibited at the NEAC↑, but some also were dissatisfied with the NEAC and formed the Camden Town Group↓. At 19, Fitzroy Street the group of members jointly rented a studio, but it also seems that Walther Sickert lived here till 1914/01, which made that the group was disbanded. (R312,p110+134+135+143+225;R55;aR8;R88;R3,p586;iR14).

1908-1919, Allied Artists’ Association (=AAA):

1913-?, London-group:
The London-group emerged from the Camden Town Group. It was an influential group. In 1913 Lucien Pissarro was co-founder of the London-group, but resigned before their first exhibition. Another co-founder was Spencer Gore (1878-1914). Chairman was Harold Gilman. (aR8;R55;R312,p141;R3,p586).

1919-1922, The Monarro Group (=MG):
The name Monarro was derived from the names of Monet and Pissarro. In 1919 Lucien Pissarro was co-founder of the Monarro Group (=MG), which promoted Impressionism in England. The aim of the group was ’to concentrate the work of those artists who have derived inspiration, more or less directly, from the leaders of the French impressionistic movement, Claude Monet and Camille Piasarro.’ (R312,p167). The 1st exhibition in 1920 showed 131 pictures and some sculptures. Partakers were Monet, Lucien Pissarro, Signac, Luce, Théo van Rysselberghe, Bonnard, Rodo Pissarro and also Miss H. Clement Hassell, E.M. Henderson, Marcel Jefferys, J.B. Manson, Ivan Mestrovic, Léon de Smet, Walther Taylor, Diana White and also Lucien Pissarro’s daughter Orovida. Works of Camille Pissarro also were shown (at least Coin de Pré). The group seized in 1922 (R312,p167/8;R3;R55;iR3;iR14).

The Leicester Gallery (=LG):
Oliver Brown was a key figure at the Gallery. Lucien Pissarro exhibited several times (every 2 years) at the Leicester Gallery (=LG) in London at least from 1922 till 1943. In the Spring of 1920 Lucien had arranged an exhibition here with etchings and some paintings of his father Camille Pissarro; it was a great success. 1843/06 an exhibition called ‘Three generations of Pissaros’ was held, showing 76 art-works of Camille, Lucien and his daughter Orovida Pissarro; it was a great success. There were memorial exhibitions held for Lucien Pissarro. In 1946/01 one with his paintings, water-colours and drawings and 1947/12 with his wood engravings, drawings and books for the Eragny Press.
