Renoir 1882 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Auguste Renoir


at the 7th impressionist exposition in 1882

An impression of his paintings


Which pictures did Renoir exhibit in 1882?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 25+4hc=29 paintings that were shown by Auguste Renoir at the 7th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1882 (catalogue numbers 137-161+hc4). Renoir showed his famous work ‘Un déjeuner à Bougival’, many portraits and, other than earlier years, many landscapes, in which he used bright colours, juxtaposed brushstrokes and blue/purple shades. I will render them by format and thematicaly. 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!




Note: probably Renoir exhibited 4 paintings outside the catalogue (=hc). Sometimes I render several options. 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
