Who were the partakers of the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition?
There were 19 partakers in the 2nd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1876. Six of them were newcomers; Desboutin and Legros were a sort of guests of honour and showed many art-works. Seven partakers would not return anymore to the ‘impressionist’ expositions. Caillebotte mentioned that Mme de Rambure also exhibited, but she was not in the catalogue (=hc). Probably she was the same as the woman that exhibited under the pseudonym ‘Jacques François‘. So the amount of partakers stays 19. Portraits of the partakers Henri Rouart (no.71-2), Claude Monet (no.220) and Auguste Renoir (no.226+hc) were depicted.
On this page you will find the catalogue numbers, links to info, pictures, an account and sometimes a (topographical / thematical) overview.
