Piette, 1877 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Ludovic Piette


at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877

an impression of his pictures


Which pictures did Piette show in 1877?
At the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition of 1877 Ludovic Piette was treated as a sort of guest of honour, showing 31 works (catalogue numbers 132 – 162). He showed many markets, harvesting scenes and aquarelles. On this page you will find an accounted impression of these 31 works that he exhibited. I render the pictures thematically and by form. Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!



Ludovic Piette exhibited 10 scenes of markets, 17 aquarelles and 4 harvesting scenes (no. 155+160+161+162). For several catalogue numbers I couldn’t find a suggestion (no.134, 135, 139, 142, 146, 147, 150, 151, 159). For some numbers I render more than one suggestion. Many suggestions are (very) uncertain, see identification of pictures.  See the link for an account. See the link for an explanation of the subscriptions and for the used sources at the main page about Ludovic Piette.
