Mulot-Durivage, pictures



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Emilien Mulot-Durivage



a topographical and thematical overview


On this page you will find an overview of the pictures that Émilien Mulot-Durivage has made. I render the pictures and titles of pictures in a topographical and thematical way (and partly chronological). I also try to render suggestions of what works he might have exhibited at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 (=1IE-1874), at the Salon  (=S), the Salon des Refusées (=SdR), at its successor the Salon de la Société des Artistes Français (=SdAF). Mulot-Durivage exhibited also at several regional exhibitions, namely in Le Havre (=LH1870 +1893 +1896), Rouen (=R1884), Angers (=A1886), Fontainebleau (=F1887), at the Annuaire de la Normandie (=AdN1891) and in Pontoise (=P1898).  See link for the account. I also will render the titles of his works I found (on auction sites) of which I have no picture. See for the sources at the bottom of the main page on Mulot-Durivage. See link for explanation of the subscriptions.  Enjoy!

Later in his life Mulot-Durivage retired at Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte, on the west coast of the Cherbourg Peninsula.
