Monet 1882 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Claude Monet (1840-1926)

An impression of his paintings

at 7th impressionist exposition 1882



General introduction:
Here you will find an impression of the 35 pictures that were shown by Monet at the seventh ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1882 (catalogue numbers 57-91). The pictures are rendered by form and in a thematical way and not chronologically following the numbers of the catalogue. We’ll start with Monet’s serie about the cliffs of the Normandy coast. There are several pictures from Vétheuil, where Monet lived from 1878-81 and also of the floating ice on the Seine in Januar 1880.
See here for an account (references, info, discussion, locations on Google-maps). My main sources are Moffett (=R2,p395), Berson (=R90) 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. My main sources for the pictures are (=iR2) and (=iR51). For other sources see at the bottom of the main page about Claude Monet. Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
