Morisot, 1876 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Berthe Morisot (1841-1895)

An impression of her paintings

at the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1876



On this page you will see an impression of the 19 paintings that Berthe Morisot probably exhibited 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!




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). 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), 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.
