Who were the partakers of the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition?
There were 16 partakers that exhibited at the 4th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1879, Gauguin and Piette (posthumously) were not in the catalogue (=hc). Seven of them were newcomers, including Cassatt, Forain and Zandomeneghi who would join all the following ‘impressionist’ expositions except in 1882, Gauguin would join all. Marie Bracquemond (no.5) and Gustave Caillebotte (no.31+hc2) were portrayed. After the exposition 2 partakers would not return anymore to the ‘impressionist’ expositions. Monet would only return in 1882.
