Mutual connections

Owning each others art-works


The partakers of the ‘impressionist’ expositions sometimes owned each others art-works. Some were real art-collectors like Caillebotte, Degas and Rouart. Others more incidentally bought each others works or exchanged them. This owning each others works is an indication of mutual connections and so an indirect indication of belonging to the same circle of friends and an indication of how involved they were in the impressionist art-movement. On this page you will find several examples of the works the ‘impressionists’ owned of each other. The focus is on the period till 1890. All the loans for the 8 ‘impressionist’ expositions will be rendered. The pictures will be rendered by form and in some chronological order.



Later collections:

Many of the ‘impressionists’ became more wealthy at the end of their lifes. So at posthumous auctions there were several works in their collections. After the death of his wife the collection of Camille Pissarro was auctioned in 1928+29. It contained works of Cassatt, Cézanne, Gauguin, Guillaumin, Monet, Piette, Seurat, Signac, Sisley. And also of Le Bail, Delacroix, Dufeu, Blanche Hoschedé, Jongkind, Luce, Manet, and Van Rysselberghe. (R312,p200).
