What pictures did Morisot show in 1876?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 19 pictures that Berthe Morisot probably showed at the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1876 (catalogue numbers 166-182). Morisot exhibited 13 oil paintings, 3 drawings / pastels and 3 watercolours. Many were made during her holiday in the summer of 1875 on the Island of Wight (R42,p50). I render the pictures in a more thematical order, by format and by used technique. Note: If you double click on the first picture (of a group) and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!




The suggestions given for the Island of Wight pictures (no.170+171+172+176+177) are partly interchangeable. Sometimes I render an extra option. Most other suggestion are (quite) certain). The 3 untitled pastel drawings are most uncertain (no.182). See link for an account of my choices (with references, info, discussion, location on Google-maps). My main sources are Moffett (=R2), Berson (R90II) and  Bataille & Wildenstein (R100). See indentification of a painting. For explanation of the subscriptions, see here. My main sources for the pictures are (=iR2), WikiCommons (=iR6) and Google images (=iR10). Sometimes I forgot the source (=iRx). See for the other sources at the bottom of the main page on Berthe Morisot.
