What paintings did Giuseppe de Nittis show in 1874?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the paintings that the Italian Joseph de Nittis showed at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1874 in Paris. He showed at least 6 and I assume 7 paintings (catalogue numbers 115-118bis). Many of them were made in Italy. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!

Explication:
There were no descriptive reviews and Giuseppe de Nittis rendered the used themes many times. So all the given suggestions are (very) uncertain. Still, a letter of De Nittis from 1874/04/23 gives some more indications.
For no. 115 I have no suggestion at all.
For no.116 I render two works to compare.
For number 117 I render two uncertain options and two works to compare.
The 3 possibilities I render for no.118 also are (very) uncertain.
For no. 118bis I render 2 uncertain options and 4 works to compare.
