Renoir 1874 Expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)

An impression of his paintings

at the 1st impressionist exposition in 1874:



Here you will find an impression of the 7 pictures that were shown by Auguste Renoir at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 (catalogue numbers 141-147). I will also render a work that maybe was exhibited outside the catalogue (=hc), but this suggestion is only rendered by one source (R30,no.99) and not affirmed by other sources. Renoir exhibited 4 portraits, 1 still-life, 1 pastel and 1 or 2 landscapes. I will render the pictures thematically and 1x render another picture to compare. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!

Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited.
