Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:


Franc Lamy



a thematical overview


What pictures are known of Franc Lamy? What pictures did he exhibit at the ‘impressionist’ expositions and at the Salon? On this page you will find pictures I found of Pierre Franc Lamy. I’ll render a thematical overview, rendering 3 themes: figure paintings, landscapes (+city views) and nudes. Some of those works were (probably) exhibited at the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français. I couldn’t find suggestions for the works that Franc Lamy exhibited at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877.
Note: Of many pictures rendered on the internet, which are claimed to be of Pierre Franc Lamy, the signature is not or badly visible. On several pictures the signature doesn’t seem to be that of Franc Lamy, several works are signed as E. Lamy instead as P. Franc Lamy. As indicated in the account there were many other artists with the last name Lamy who also exhibited at the Salon.


Figure paintings:
Franc Lamy namely depicted elegant ladies. Note the similarities between the sitters.


Landscapes + city views:
Franc Lamy made several landscapes and city views. At the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877 he depicted 2 works made in Évreux and 2 made in Montmartre. At the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français Franc Lamy exhibited works depicting Versailles (1901+02+04+13), Brugge (1903 +14), Venice (1904-13), Florence (1905), Holland (1905 +10 +14).
