Morisot, 1880 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

an impression of her pictures

What pictures did Morisot exhibit in 1880?
On this page you will see an accounted impression of the 15 pictures that Berthe Morisot probably showed at the 5th ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1880 (catalogue numbers 113-127). Morisot exhibited 10 oil paintings, 4 (untitled) watercolours and 1 fan. Most works were figure paintings. 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. 5 works were untitled and 5 works have a very common title, which makes them hard to identify. 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.
