An Impression of his paintings

at the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1879

Catalogue numbers: 138-166+hc3

 

 

General introduction:
Here you will find an impression of the 29+3hc=32 pictures that were shown by Monet at the fourth ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1879. For a part, it was a retrospective of some older paintings. But most of his paintings he exhibited, he had recently painted in Vétheuil and Lavacourt. Monet had moved to Vétheuil in 1878. Probably during the exhibition two extra pictures of Vétheuil were hung by Caillebotte on behalf of Monet. It is a feast of bright, vibrant colours! Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!

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 the-athenaeum.org (=iR2) and art-monet.com (=iR51).
