Renoir 1877 expo


Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Auguste Renoir (1841-1919)

An impression of his paintings

at the 3rd impressionist exposition in 1877


On this page you will find an impression of the 21 pictures that were shown by Auguste Renoir at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877 (catalogue numbers 185-205). I will render them by format and thematicaly; several times I render several options. Most prominent was his masterpiece Ball at the Moulin de la Galette. Many other pictures were portraits and figure paintings. It was nice to discover that two quite unknown works, did fit descriptions in the reviews (no.196+197). 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!





See link for an account of my choices (with references, info, discussion, location on Google-maps). My main sources are Moffett (=R2), Berson (R90II), Dony (R30) and Raeburn (R31). Often the indentification of a painting is ‘uncertain’. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, see here. My main sources for the pictures are (=iR2), WikiCommons (=iR6) and Google images (=iR10). Sometimes I forgot the source (=iRx). For references to the additional sources (=aR) see at the bottom of the main page about Auguste Renoir
