    • 2x indication of time, season or weather
    • 0x a study
    • 0x loans (appartient à…).
  • See for the suggestions of Dayez / Adhémar (R87,p249/250); See for the suggestions of Moffett (R2,p122); See for the suggestions of Berson (R90II,p11/2+27); they refer to the Catalogue Raisonné of Ludovic Pissarro and Lionello Venturi of 1939 (=R126), referred to as CR.

1874 catalogue: (R2,p122; iR1)

1IE-1874-136, Le Verger
Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggest (with a perhaps) CR153 (R2,p137) = CCP248. The CCP suggests no.294, because and Leroy and Castagnary refer to cabbages (choux) (R116,CCP294;R2,p137). Leroy mentioning ‘les Choux’  suggests this was the title of the work exhibited (R87,p260), which could suggests a work exhibited outside the catalogue. But Castagnary explicitly refers to the title ‘les terres maraîchères (le Verger)’ which means ‘market garden land (the orchard)’ (R87,p265). (Leroy more often made his own title, see ‘champs labouré’ for ‘Gelée blanche’; R87,p259). So maybe ‘le verger’ wasn’t such a good title, more referring to fruit trees. It’s probably because of the title that Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggested CR153=CCP248. Now: 1873, CCP294, The Cabbage Field, Pontoise, 60×80, MTB Madrid (iR2,R116).

1IE-1874-137, Gelée blanche
Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggest CR203 (R2,p138) = CCP285. The CCP also suggests no.285. Now: 1873, CCP285, hoarfrost at Ennery, 65×93, Orsay (iR2;iR59;R2,p138;R116). Castagnary (1874/04/29) marks the ’trees that are placed outside the frame’ and also writes: ‘His synthesising gaze embraces the whole at a glance.’ (R116II,p226;R2,p138). The painting depicts the old road to Ennery (R2,p138). This work was bought by Fauré 1874/10/02 (R116II,p226;R2,p138).

1IE-1874-138, Les Châtaigners à Osny
Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggest CR236 (R2,p139) = CCP313. The CCP also suggests no.313. Now: 1873ca, CCP313, Chestnut Trees at Osny, 65×81,private (iR2;iR59;R2,p139;R116). Also exhibited as no. 64 in 1883 at the solo exhibition organised by Durand-Ruel (R116II,p247).

1IE-1874-139, Jardin de la ville de Pontoise
Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggest (with a perhaps) CR257 in a private collection in Honolulu (R2,p122) = CCP347. The CCP suggests no.309, just as Venturi (R126;R90II,p12). I render this suggestion of the CCP as ‘probably’ exhibited. Now: 1873, CCP309, The Municipal Garden, Pontoise, 60×73, Hermitage (iR2;iR59;R116). Pissarro lived close by at 16, rue Malebranche (now: 18, rue Revert). Maybe CR257=CCP347 was painted after the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition. I will render this one as second options as ‘maybe’ exhibited. There were no reviews (R90II,p12).

1IE-1874-140, Une Matinée du mois de juin
Adhémar, Moffett and Berson suggests CR224 in the Staatliche Kunsthalle in Karlsruhe (R2,p122) = CCP312. The CCP also suggests no.312. Now: 1873, CCP312, Morning in June, Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône, 55×91, SKh Karlsruhe, (iR2;iR59;R116). It was also exhibited in 1877 in Pau (no.358) (R116I,p362). André Gorse then wrote: ‘Seldom have I seen a deeper, more harmonious sky… it has a naïve simplicity’. The painting depicts the only remaining corner tower of the former 13th century abbey and later estate of Maubuisson at Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône. (R116II,p246).

 

The second ‘impressionist’ exposition 1876:

  • catalogue numbers 197-208
  • in total  Pissarro exhibited 12 works, all oil paintings
    • 8x indication of place 
    • 5x indication of time, season or weather
    • 0x a study
    • 1x loan (appartient à…): no.199 à M. Chocquet
  • See for the suggestions of Moffett (R2,p164) and Berson (R90II,p43+61/2); they refer to the Catalogue Raisonné of Ludovic Pissarro and Lionello Venturi of 1939, referred to as CR (=R126).
  • See for the suggestions of Joachim Pissarro & Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts Volume I of the Critical Catalogue of Paintings of 2005, page 362 and the numbers of the CCP (=R116).

1876 catalogue: (R2,p164; iR1)

2IE-1876-197, Printemps, soleil couchant
Moffett suggests with a perhaps CR336 = CCP437, now: 1876, CCP437, Sunset effect, L’Hermitage, Pontoise, 46×55, private (iR10;iR48;R116). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to the reviews of Silvestre and Rivière (R90II,p43). Rivière / Dax just mentions the title and calls it very beautiful (R90I,p70). Silvestre renders the title as one of the very interesting paintings (R90I,p109). Maybe CCP246 and 248 are options, depicting a Spring landscape with a setting sun. They are made in 1872, so I thing CCP437 is the best option.

2IE-1876-198, Un étang à Montfoucault (Mayenne)
Moffett suggests with a perhaps CR268 in a private collection in Switzerland (R2,p183), Berson follows = CCP371, now: 1874, CCP371, The Pond at sunset,  Montfoucault, 54×66, private Switzerland (iR59;iR2;R2,p183;R116). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Silvestre renders the title as one of the very interesting paintings (R90I,p109). There were no other reviews (R90I,p43). Pissarro rendered the pond at Montfoucault many times (R116,CCP96/371/372/373/390/426/428/429/430/665), the last one painted in 1881 is no option. CCP96 was made around 1864 and therefor a lesser option. CCP371 explicitly renders a sunset, what is not in the catalogue title, I therefor think it is a lesser option. CCP372 and 373 are better options.  CCP390 is made in winter. CCP426 is suggested for no.203. CCP428 is a good option being painted in the same time as CCP426. CCP429 is a large painting 114×110 and would likely have been reviewed more often. CCP430 is made in winter. Apart from CCP371 I will also render CCP372 and 428 as options. 

2IE-1876-199, Gelée blanche avec Brouillard ; appartient à M. Choquet (sic)
Moffett suggests CR246 = CCP331, Berson follows. The CCP also suggests no.331. Now: 1874, CCP331, Brouillard (Fog), 54×65, private (iR10;iR94;R116) Chocquet collection. 

2IE-1876-200, Neige, coteaux de l’Hermitage (Pontoise)
Moffett suggests CR238 in a private collection (R2,p156), Berson follows = CCP327. The CCP also suggests no.327. Now: 1874, CCP327, Effect of snow at the L’Hermitage, Pontoise, 55×66, private, (iR2;iR59;R2,p156;R116). 

2IE-1876-201, Fermes à Montfoucault
Moffett suggests CR274 in Musée d’Art et d’Histoire in Geneva, Berson follows = CCP377. The CCP also suggests no.337. Now: 1874, CCP377, Farm at Montfoucault, 60×74, MAH Geneva, (iR2;iR59;R116). 

2IE-1876-202, Les coteaux du Choux
Eng.: les coteaux means the hillside. Choux can refer to Chou a Hamlet close to Pontoise, but also means cabbages, see also 1IE-1874-136. Moffett suggests with a perhaps CR370 in the Metropolitan = CCP474, but this work never has been in the Metropolitan and it doesn’t depict the ‘sente du Chou’. Maybe Moffett refers to: 1874, CCP354=CR260, Woman herking a cow, View of the Côte du Valhermeil, Auvers-sur-Oise, 55×92, Metropolitan (iR2;iR59;R116). Berson also renders this suggestion based on subject and date, there were no reviews (R90I,p43). This work was known as a landscape on the road to Chou, which seems to be incorrect (R116,CCP354). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP writes that Gène-Mur minutely described this picture in La Correspondance française (1876/04/16) in a review titled ‘revue artistique: les impressionnistes’ (R116I,p362). I haven’t found this review yet, Berson doesn’t render it (R90I). When Chou refers to the Hamlet CCP290 is an option. When it refers to cabbages CCP301 can be an option. 

2IE-1876-203, Le berger
Moffett suggests with a perhaps CR366, Berson follows = CCP426. The CCP suggests also no.426. Now: 1875-6, CCP426, The shepherd at Montfoucault, sunset, 58×72, A1993/11/29 (iR10;R116).

2IE-1876-204, Effet de neige à Pontoise
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there were no reviews (R90I,p43).  The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Options are CCP 279, 280, 284, 323, 328, 329, 330, 332, 392, 393. I will render 4 more recent works CCP329, 332, 392 and 393.

2IE-1876-205, Effet de neige, coteaux d’Osny
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there were no reviews (R90I,p43). The CCP suggests no.286. I follow.

2IE-1876-206, Les jardins de l’Hermitage
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there were no reviews (R90I,p43). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Options are CCP 321, 342, 449. The last one was exhibited as 4IE-1879-182. The other two I render as uncertain options.

2IE-1876-207, Paysanne
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there was a review of Blémont (R90I,p43), who just writes ‘His Paysanne is a little better.’ (R90I,p64). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Options are CCP368, 369, 420, I will render these. Other lesser options are CCP337, 355. 

2IE-1876-208, Village d’Hermitage
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there were no reviews (R90I,p43). The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Pissarro very often depicted l’Hermitage, a quarter of Pontoise. The next works are the best options, because they depict more the village as a whole: CCP 348, 356, 410, 411, 412. I just render CCP356 and 412.

 

The third ‘impressionist’  exposition 1877:

  • catalogue numbers 163 – 184
  • so in total  Pissarro (Camille) exhibited 22 works
    • 18x indication of place; Côte Saint-Denis, Pontoise (no. 163+164+165); Jardin des Mathurins, Pontoise (no.166+167+168); Montbuisson, Pontoise (no.169+175); l’Hermitage, Pontoise (no.174+179); Bord de l’Oise (no.172+173+174+177); Montfoucault (no.181+182)
    • 4x indication of time, season or weather (no.171+172+176+178)

  • See for the suggestions of Moffett (R2,p206) and Berson (R90II,p80/1+98-100); they refer to the Catalogue Raisonné of Ludovic Pissarro and Lionello Venturi of 1939, refered to as CR (=R126); he also refers to Brettell: a day in the country (=R17).
  • See for the suggestions of Volume I of the Critical Catalogue of Paintings of Joachim Pissarro & Claire Durand-Ruel Snollaerts of 2005, page 362 and the numbers of the CCP (=R116).

3IE-1877-172, Bord de l’Oise en automne, appartient à M. Ch…
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Nor does Berson, who refers to a review in the Petite République française (R90II,p81), who just calls it a remarkable painting (R90I,p176). To compare I render: Compare: CCP453, Rider on the banks of the Oise, Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône, overcast sky, 54×64, Boijmans Rotterdam (iR10;iR6;R116,CCP453;R2,p206;M70), a work probably bought from the artist by Eugène Leroux around 1877, what contradicts the loan by M. Ch…

3IE-1877-173, Bord de l’Oise, route d’Auvers
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Nor does Berson, who refers to a review in the Petite République française (R90II,p81), who just calls it a remarkable painting (R90I,p176). I render 2 uncertain options: Maybe: CCP303, 1873, Route d’Auvers on the banks of the Oise, P, 38×58, Indianapolis MA (iR10;iR6;R116,CCP303;R2,p206;M161) = sale HD1896/04/29-42; and more uncdrtain: CCP456, 1876, Le quai du Pothuis à Pontoise, 46×55, A2014/05/06 (iR11;R116,CCP456;R2,p206).

3IE-1877-174, Place de l’Hermitage à Pontoise
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews. As an uncertain option I render: CCP436, 1876, A Crossroads at l’Hermitage, Pontoise, 38×46, MuMa Le Havre (HW18;R116,CCP436;R2,p206;M15).

3IE-1877-175, Grand poirier, à Montbuisson, appartient à M. H…
Moffett suggests CR383, referring to Brettell = CCP493. (This work is not in the Bretell catalogue, the reference is unclear; R17). The CCP suggests no.492 = CR389, which Berson also sugggests.  Now: 1877, CCP492, Pear Trees in bloom, orchard at Pontoise, 61×72, private (iR10;iR94;R116) Part of the Hoschedé collection, maybe HD1878/06/05-64, Les poiriers, 60×72 (R90II,p81). I will also render CCP493 as a more uncertain option. 

3IE-1877-176, Paysage avec ruine (automne), appartient à M. H…
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews. The CCP suggests no.335. Now: 1874, CCP335, Fog, Pontoise, 46×56, xx (iR94;iR10;R116) Was part of the Hoschedé collection. Note: the CCP335 doesn’t depict a ruin and the CCP depicts this work together with others made early winter 1874, all this makes this suggestion quite uncertain. As an uncertain alternative I render: CCP410, 1875, Houses at l’Hermitage (seen from Rue de la Côte-du-Jalet), Pontoise, 61×71, private (iR135;iR10;R116,CCP410;R2,p206);  the first house on the right seems ruined; compare also CCP348.

3IE-1877-177, Bord de l’Oise, marine
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews. As an uncertain option I render:  CCP459, 1876, Tug-boat and berges on the Oise, Pontoise, 38×56, Chapel Hill AAM (iR6;iR10;R116,CCP459;R2,p206).

3IE-1877-178, Basse-cour, pluie
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews. The CCP suggests no.497. Now: 1877, CCP497, The hens, barnyard at the Red house, Pontoise, 33×41, private (iR10;iR94;R116). Note: This painting depicts more sunlight than rain, so I render it as a more uncertain option.

3IE-1877-179, Vue de l’Hermitage
Moffett suggests with a perhaps CR350 (=CCP449) in a private collection in Paris, referring to Brettell, Berson mentions this suggestion, but leaves it unidentified. There were no reviews.  The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion and suggests CCP449 for 4IE-1879-182.  I therefor render another uncertain option: CCP405, 1875, Chemin montant, Rue de la Côte-du-Jalet, Pontoise, 54×65, Brooklyn MA (iR10;M65;R2,p206;R116,CCP405); and also: CCP322, 1873, View of Pontoise, 53×81, private (iR10;iR7;R116,CCP322,R2,p206). Compare also CCP348 and CCP410.

3IE-1877-180, La Moisson, appartient à M. C…
Moffett suggests CR364 in Musée d’Orsay, part of the Caillebotte bequest (R2,p233), Berson follows = CCP465. The CCP also suggests no.465. Now: 1876, CCP465, Harvest at Montfoucault, 65×93, Orsay (iR2;iR59;R2,p233;R116). Caillebotte collection.

3IE-1877-182, Un friche, à Montfoucault
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews. The CCP suggests no.374 with a ? Now: 1874, CCP374, Piette’s Home on Montfoucault, 46×55, private (iR2;R116). Friche means waste land.

3IE-1877-183, Paysage
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to a review in the La Petite Republique, where it is only called remarkable (R90I,p176). The CCP suggests no.496 with a ?, referring to a drawing (R116II,p352). Now: 1877, CCP496, Gust of wind, Auvers-sur-Oise, 38×46, A1996/04/30 (iR10;iR94;iR15;R116).

3IE-1877-184, La plaine, à Pontoise
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion. Berson leaves out this work which means there were no reviews.

Eaux-fortes :
Note 1: the etchings were reviewed by Huysmans and Silvestre (1880/04/24) (R90II,p153). It is (mostly) uncertain which of the states Pissarro did exhibit. So most of the suggestions are with a perhaps or =!?. Note 2: (Note: the Critical Catalogue of paintings (=R116) doesn’t give suggestions.)

reviews:
Jules Claretie (1881/04/05) reviewed ‘Le Clos des choux (no.64) by Mr. Pissarro is, however, quite astonishing. It reminds one of Millet.’ (R90I,p334).
Félix Fénénon (1886/06/13-20) just mentioned (part of the) titles of no. 63, 64 and 71 (R90I,p444).
Gustave Geffroy (1881/04/19) reviewed ‘It is mainly the impressionist landscape artists that we are thinking of at the moment. It is true that there are some beautiful pictures of M. Pisssarro in this year’s exhibition; his peasants, working under the burning lights of a summer sky, have a simple and great style; in his brilliant, deep landscapes, an implacable light vibrates. But all tones taken to the extreme have a certain monotony. Furthermore, an identical process does not render different effects. I admire la Sente du chou (no.63), le Paysage d’été (no.67), la Moisson (no.74), but I can’t regret seeing the le Boulevard Rochechouart (no.90)  covered with purple and lilac spots, the meaning of which is completely lost on me.’ (R90I,p342).
Armand Silvestre (1881/04/11) reviewed ‘M. Pissarro is there, it is true, and holds high the flag of the dispersed battalion. Of his twenty-eight canvases or gouaches, there is not one that deserves to be looked at (?HW). La sente des choux en mars (no.63) is a work full of sincerity and accuracy. I would say the same about la Maison du passeur au choux (no.70)  and I love la Ravaudeuse (no.88) very much. M. Pissarro reminds one of Millet without imitating him in any way.’ (R90II,p365).
Armand Silvestre (1881/04/16) reviewed ‘The submission of M. Pissarro comprises no less than twenty-seven oil and gouache paintings. It is still the same sincere art, reminiscent of Millet only in the similarity of the subjects, but truly original, with a very special vision of things, but remaining absolutely correct in the tone adopted. I especially like la Sente des choux en mars (no.63) , la Maison du passeur aux choux (no.70) and, in lesser dimensions, la Ravaudeuse (no.88) ‘ (R90I,p366).

1881 catalogue: (R2,p354/5; R90I,p326/7;iR1)

6IE-1881-63, La Sente du choux en mars; appartient à M. J.P.
Moffett suggests CR452 in Musée de la Chartreuse, Douai (R2,p347), Berson follows = CCP542. The CCP also suggests no.542. Now: 1878, CCP542, The Path to Le Chou, Pontoise (in March), 57×92 (or57x92), MC Douai (iR2;iR59;R2,p347;R116). Le chemin du Chou, lies in the hamlet of Chou, which is part of Pontoise (iR9).

6IE-1881-64, Le clos du choux, le matin; appartient à M. J. P.
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to the reviews of Claretie and Fénéon (1886). Eng.: enclosed land with cabbages, morning. Pissarro often depicted cabbages. Just two also depict a closed or fenced land, namely CCP554 and 558, which I will render: CCP554, 1878, Kitchen garden and orchard, Pontoise, 22×23, HM Huntington (iR10;iR94;R116,CCP554;R2,p354). CCP558 was part of the Diego Martelli collection, so I will render that one to compare, CCP558, 1878, In a kitchen garden, 47×56, GAM Florence (iR10;iR94;R116,CCP558;R2,p354;M105) . Neither of them clearly depict a morning scene. CCP294 does more and was exhibited as 1IE-1874-136. Another possiblility is that the title refers to the hamlet of Le Chou, see no.63.

6IE-1881-65, La côte des Grouettes, automne; appartient à M. P.
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion, Berson follows, there were no reviews (R90II,p183). As uncertain options I render: CCP550, 1878ca, Landscape at Pontoise (Côte des Grouettes), on panel, 8×10, A2016/04/05 (iR10;iR11;R116,CCP550;R126,CR460); and: CCP569, 1878ca, Peasants passing each other on a road, Pontoise (Côte des Grouettes), 74×60, Metropolitan (iR10;iR7;R116,CCP569;R126,CR465;M23). Note: I render them to compare because these works didn’t belong to a Mr. P.

6IE-1881-66          Une cour à l’Hermitage, étude, appartient à M. P.
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP suggests no.634 or 635 with a ?. Now: 1880, CCP634, La cour de la maison Rondest, Pontoise, 35×27, A2010/11/04 (iR10;iR15;iR11;R116). Option 2 is: CCP635, 1880, The courtyard at the rondest house, Pontoise, 54×45, OMA Kurashiki (iR10;iR94;R116,CCP635;M129). Note: these works didn’t belong to a Mr. P. Berson leaves the work unidentified, there were no reviews (R90II,p183).

6IE-1881-67          Paysage d’été avec figures; appartient à M. P.
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson, who refers to the review of Geffroy. Most pictures that fit this title, are pictures of people harvesting. I found two other pictures, that I will render to compare, they both weren’t part of the collection of Mr. P. : CCP636, 1880, La récolte (Côte des Grouettes), Pontoise, 46×56, A2010/02/02 (iR11;R116,CCP636;R126,CR517); and: CCP638, 1880, Peasant woman in a field, Pontoise, 47×65, private (iR10;iR6;R116,CCP638) 1891/04/22 Vignon sold this work to Durand-Ruel.

6IE-1881-68          Chaumières au Val Hermé
The CCP suggests no.632. Now: 1880, CCP632, Rue des Roches at Le Valhermeil, (Thatched Cottages and a Cow), 60×73, private (iR2;R116). Moffett suggests with a perhaps for no. 68 and 69 CR506 in a private collection or CR511 (R2,p367), Berson follows = CCP639 or 631. Now: 1880, CCP639, La Valhermeil, Auvers-sur-Oise, 54×65, private (iR2;R2,p367;R116).

6IE-1881-69          Chaumières au Val Hermé
The CCP suggests no.631. Now: 1880, CCP631, Cottages at le Valhermeil, Auvers-sur-Oise, 59×73, private (iR59;R116).

Now: 1880, CCP639, La Valhermeil, Auvers-sur-Oise, 54×65, private (iR2;R2,p367;R116).

6IE-1881-70          La maison du passeur au Choux
Eng.: House of the ferryman or smuggler. Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson, who refers to reviews of Silvestre (11+16/4/1881). For le Chou, see no. 63. I render a very uncertain options: CCP613, 1879, Peasant woman and goat in front of a house, Pontoise, 58×70, Muskegon MA (iR10;iR94;R116,CCP613). To compare I also render: CCP604, 1879, Le chemin de halage, environs Pontoise, 56×46, A2001/11/06 (iR11;iR15;R116,CCP604).

6IE-1881-71          Soleil couchant, la plaine du Choux
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to the reviews of Fénéon (1886), Huysmans and Vernay (R90II,p183). The CCP suggests no.621, citing the review of Huysmans (R90I,p350). Now: 1880, CCP621, Soleil couchant au Valhermeil, Aurvers-sur-Oise, 54×65, A2011/02/08 (iR11;R116).

6IE-1881-72          Paysage pris sur le vieux chemin d’Ennery, près Pontoise

Maybe CCP 524 also is an option: CCP524, 1877, The old road to Ennery, Pontoise, 92×151, Ottawa NGC (iR10;iR94;R116,CCP524;M113).

6IE-1881-73          Temps gris, automne au Val Hermé
Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion. The CCP suggests no.639 with a ?. Now: 1880, CCP639, La Valhermeil, Auvers-sur-Oise, 54×65, private (iR2;R2,p367;R116). Note: Moffett had suggested this work as an option for no.68 or 69, so did Berson.

gouaches:
(Note: the Critical Catalogue of paintings (=R116) doesn’t give suggestions.)

6IE-1881-74          La Moisson, gouache ; appartient à M. Clapisson
Eng.: the harvest. Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to the reviews of C.E., Geffroy, Huysmans, Michel, de Mont. Michel described ‘of a blond, quiet and fine colour.’ (R90I,p359). It reminded Huysmans of gouaches made by Ludovic Piette (R90I,p351). To compare I render a pastel: 1876, étude pour La moisson à Montfoucault, pastel, 21×26, A2007/02/06 (iR11;iR2;R2,p355;R116,CCP465), a ‘blond’ work made in Montfoucault, where Piette did live and resembling CCP465, exhibited as 3IE-1877-180.

Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson who refers to the reviews of Cardon, Enjoiras, Ganzague-Privat, de Mont., which also can refer to no. 77. They all don’t render a description. I render: 1886, CR1405, The Potato Harvest, gouache, 29×41, A2018/05/10 (iR11;iR15;iR6;R126,CR1405;R2,p355). This work is dated 1886, but it resembles CCP360, which is dated 1874.

reviews:
Emile Hennequin (1882/03/11) reviewed ‘His trees, his meadows, his palisades, his land, are painted with that same severe reflection, which discolours even the cheeks of his women. On the other hand, the attitudes of his peasants and peasant women, the way they bend, sit, carry, are captured and rendered with a striking accuracy, a striking truth.'(R90I,p393).
J.-K. Huysmans (1883) reviewed ‘Sa Route de Pontoise à Auvers (no.102), son Soleil couchant (no.105), sa Vue de la prison de Pontoise (no.121), with their large skies with clouds of sheep and their sprays of trees so firmly attached to the ground, are counterparts of the magnificent landscapes (…). M. Pissarro has entirely freed himself from the memories of Millet; he paints his countrymen, without false grandeur, simply, as he sees them. His delicious girls in red stockings (no.114), his old woman in mermotte (no.107), his shepherdesses and his washerwomen (no.108), his peasant women having breakfast (no.111?) or making grass (no.110), are real little masterpieces.’ (R90I,p397).
Henry Robert (1882/03/05) reviewed ‘He wanted to interpret nature as he saw it and we must be grateful to him for having had the audacity to be one of the first to raise the flag of the present revolution.’ (R90I,p410).

  • no.102 also has a bis
  • no. 107 contained of 6 pastels
  • no. 110 + 112 + 113 contained of 2 etchings.
  • so in total Pissarro exhibited 28 works, including 9 oil paintings (no.95-102bis); 4 gouaches (no.103-6); 7 pastels (no.107+8); 8 etchings (no.109-113)
    • 8x indication of place (3x Bazincourt; 4x Rouen; 1x Osny)
    • 9x indication of time, season or weather
    • 7x a study (all the pastels)
    • 0x loans (appartient à…),
  • See for the suggestions of Moffett (R2,p445/6) and of Berson (R90II,p246-248+266-268); Moffett refers to the Catalogue Raisonné of Ludovic Pissarro and Lionello Venturi of 1939, referred to as CR (=R126). For the etchings Moffett refers to Delteil : Le peintre-graveur illustré (XIXe  siècle). Vol.17. Paris, 1923 (=R138).

  • See link for the pictures.

reviews:
Marcel Fouquier (1886/05/16) reviewed ‘M. Pissarro proceeds by small, precise, separate touches, by juxtapositions that are both fine and penetrating in their frank tones. Up close, his paintings look like a collection of variously coloured nail heads. But with the proper distance, perspective is established, the planes deepen, and as the sky is treated with a deliberate lightness, the impression is created of a vast space and an indefinite horizon. ‘ (R90I,p448).

Moffett doesn’t give a suggestion, nor does Berson; there were no reviews. Maybe??: 1872, Portrait of Jeanne-Rachel (Minette), pastel, xx, private (iR2;R2,p445).

Etchings:
(Note: the Critical Catalogue of paintings (=R116) doesn’t give suggestions.)

8IE-1886-109, Récolte de pommes de terre (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.63, Berson affirms. Now: 1886, D63+B48, Récolte de Pommes de Terres, etch ps, 28×22, NGA Washington (iR59;R138XVII,no63;R85XI,no48;R90II,p268;M21).

8IE-1886-110-1, Rue de l’Epicerie, à Rouen, (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.64, Berson affirms. Now: 1886, D64+B47, Rue de l’Epicerie, Rouen, etch ps, 16×14, A2017/06/10 (iR11;R138XVII,no64;R85XI,no47;R90II,p268).

8IE-1886-110-2, Rue Malpalue, à Rouen (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.53, Berson affirms. Now: 1885, D53+B42, La rue Malpalue, à Rouen, etch, 50×43, A2017/12/14 (iR11;R138XVII,no53;R85XI,no42;R90II,p268).

8IE-1886-111, Vaches et paysage (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.59, Berson affirms. Now: 1885, D59+B37, Prairie et moulin (à Osny), etch, 16×24, A2017/06/15 (iR11;R138XVII,no59;R85XI,no37;R90II,p268).

8IE-1886-112-1, Port de Rouen, effet de pluie (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.44 or 65, so does Berson. I think Delteil 65 is the same of Beraldi 46, titled ‘Place de la République à Rouen, avec tramway’. And Delteil no. 44 the same as Beraldi no. 38 titled ‘Effet de pluie, place de la République à Rouen’. The Place de la République at Rouen is near the Seine, but doesn’t border it. Still, Delteil 44 is one of the view etches depicting rain, so I think it is a good option. Delteil no. 65, doesn’t depict rain and prominently shows a tramway, so I don’t think it is a good suggestion.

8IE-1886-112-2, (et) paysage (eau-forte)
Moffett doesn’t discern 2 works, nor does Berson. As a very uncertain suggestion I render: 1885, D55+B26, Paysage à Rouen, Côte Sainte-Catherine, etch, 13×18, A2018/05/08 (iR11;R138XVII,no55;R85XI,no26)

8IE-1886-113-1, Paysage à Rouen (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.5o, so does Berson. Now: 1884, D50+B27, View of Rouen (Cours-la-reine), etch, 15×20, MFA Boston (iR59;iR10;iR163;R138XVII,no50;R85XI,no27;R90II,p269;M22)

8IE-1886-113-2, paysage à Osny (eau-forte)
Moffett suggests Delteil no.61 or 62. Berson only renders no.62, this is maybe Beraldi no. 40 ‘Église à Osny’, or no. 54 ‘Paysage à Osny’. Delteil no. 61 is titled ‘Paysanne dans les choux’, so it doesn’t seem a good suggestion.

 

 

Camille Pissarro at the Salon:
My main sources are the Salon database (=iR1) and the Critical Catalogue of Paintings (=CCP=R116). See link for the pictures.
The Salon database indicates that Pissarro was born at Saint-Thomas (Antilles), a Danish colony. (Also called a french colony).
Pissarro was a pupil of A. Melbye and Corot (iR1).
1864: Pissarro lived 57, rue de Vanves, Paris (iR1)
1865: Pissarro lived at La Varenne (iR1)
1866: Pissarro lived rue du Fond-de-l’Ermitage, Pontoise (iR1)
1868: Pissarro lived 108, boulevard Rochechouart, Paris (iR1)

1869: M. Carpentier, 8, boulevard Montmartre, Paris
1870: M. Marin, 52, rue Lafitte, Paris

S1859-2472, Paysage à Montmorency
Debut of Pissarro at the Salon with a view on Montmorency (near Pontoise) (R6,p40;R3). Almost certainly now: 1858ca, CCP37, Donkey in front of a farm, Montmorency, 22×27, Orsay (R116) (this was not in the CR of 1939). Note: signed as ‘C. Pizarro’. Two critics positively mention the work (R116,I,p111).

SdR1863-468, Paysage
A very uncertain suggestion: 1862, CCP57, donkeys at pasture, 32×75, A2015/11/13 (iR2;iR11;R116) = CR19.

SdR1863-469, Etude
A very uncertain suggestion: 1862, CCP59, white horse and tipcart, 24×33, private (iR2;R116) =CR21.

SdR1863-470, Village
A very uncertain suggestion: 1863, CCP70, village corner, women chatting, 40×52, A2002/11/06 (iR2;iR14;R116) =CR27.

S1864- 1558, Bords de la Marne

S1864- 1559, Route de Cachalas, à La Ruche-Guyon
Probably ment to be: Route de Clachalôze à La Roche-Guyon, see map. Maybe: 1862, CCP55, Promenade sur un chemin (La Roche Guyon), 37×28, private (R116) (this was not in the CR of 1939). Compare: 1865ca, CCP105, Donkey ride at La Roche-Guyon, 37×52, private (iR2;R116) =CR45.

S1865-1723, Chennevières, au bord de la Marne
Now: 1865ca, CCP103, Banks of the Marne at Chennevières, 92×146, SNG Edinburgh (iR2;R116) =CR46.

S1865-1724, Le bord de l’eau
A very uncertain option: 1863-5ca, CCP80, River bank and Barge (at le Roche-Guyon), 10×19 (or 46×72), A2000/06/27 (or MCP Pontoise) (iR112;iR2;iR15;R116) (this was not in the CR of 1939).

S1866- 1564, Bords de la Marne en hiver
Now: 1866, CCP107, banks of the Marne in winter, 92×150, AI Chicago (iR2;R116) =CR47.

S1868-2015, La côte de Jallais
Now: 1867, CCP116, Côte des Jalais, Pontoise, 87×115, Metropolitan = CR55. Compare: 1867ca, CCP120, View of the L’Hermitage, Côte des Gratte-Coqs, 70×100, Unicef Cologne. This view was seen from the Rue de la Côte-du-Jalet (now: Rue Victor-Hugo). Maybe ‘Jallais’ and ‘Jalet’ are the same.

S1868-2016, L’hermitage
Now: 1867ca, CCP115, Le Jardin de Maubuisson, Pontoise (The Gardens of l’Hermitage), 82×100, NGP Prague (iR2;R116) =CR52.

S1869-1950, L’ermitage
An uncertain suggestion: 1867ca, CCP121, The hills at L’Hermitage, Pontoise, 151×206, Guggenheim NY (iR112;iR2;R116) =CR58.

S1870-2291, Paysage
A very uncertain suggestion: 1869ca, CCP136, Louveciennes, the brook at Montbuisson, 46×56, private (iR2;R116) (this was not in the CR of 1939).
