Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:
at the 1st impressionist exposition in 1874:
An impression of his pictures
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 7 pictures that were shown by Auguste Renoir at the 1st ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1874 (catalogue numbers 141-147). Renoir exhibited 4 portraits, 1 still-life, 1 pastel and 1 (probably not 2) landscapes. I will render the pictures thematically. Note: If you double click on the first picture and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
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, so I assume it wasn’t exhibited. See link for an account of the given suggestions. Sometimes the identification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, see. For an account (references, translations, info, discussion, locations on Google-Maps), see. For the general references (=R) see. For references to internet pages (=iR) see. For references to the additional sources (=aR) see at the bottom of the main page about Auguste Renoir.
