Regional exhibitions


Regional exhibitions were an opportunity to exhibit (a small number of) works. These opportunities increased since the late 1870s. In some way they were an alternative for the Salon and the own ‘impressionist’ expositions, to promote yourself as an artists and to sell your works. It is always interesting to know what the connection is between the artist and the Regional exhibition. Did they (formerly) live in that regio? Did they have family or other connections in that regio? Did they sent in the pictures themselves or were they loans from private owners or galleries? Mostly sources don’t make this clear, when so I will add this information.
