Monet 1877 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Claude Monet (1840-1926)

An impression of his paintings

at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877



Here you will find an impression of the 30+1hc=31 pictures that were shown by Claude Monet at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877 (Catalogue numbers 90-119+hc). I will render the pictures in a thematical way and by form. Seven of them were made in Montgeron, in and around the Château Rottembourg, the estate of his friend Ernest Hoschedé, who also lent 11 paintings of Monet to this exhibition.
I’ll start with Monet his serie of the Saint-Lazare station. The catalogue of 1877 mentions 7 works. Reviews mention at least one work that was not in the catalogue (=hc), so that makes 8. Four works are titled  ‘interior of the station’ (no.102,116,117,118). The Catalogue Raisonné, of all the known paintings of Monet made by Wildenstein, also shows 4 paintings of the interior of the station (R22,CR438-441). This seems to be a match! But in reality it is a large quest. See for more information the account.
Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!




For an account of my suggestions (with references, info, discussion, locations on Google-maps) see hereMy main sources are Moffett (=R2) and Wildenstein (R22). 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 here. My main sources for the pictures are (=iR2) and (=iR51).
