Account

of his exhibited works

 

 

Introduction:
On this page you will find an account of the works that Vignon has exhibited with the Impressionists in 1880 + 81 + 82 + 86 (=IE1880-86) and at the Salon of 1878 (=S1878). You will also find some info on where else his work was exhibited, especially in solo exhibitions at  Bernheim-Jeune in 1894 (=BJ1894), posthumous in 1921 at Bernheim-Jeune (=BJ1921), in 1927 at the Jacques Callot gallery (=JC1927) and in 1938 at Huinck & Scherjon in Amsterdam (=HS1938). Also you will find some info on works of Vignon that were auctioned at Hôtel Drouot (=HD), the Georges Petit Gallery (=GP), at the Durand-Ruel Galleries (=DR). Especially the sales of Comte Armand Doria (=GP1899/05/04), of Charles G. (=GP1900/06/11), of Arsène Alexandre (GP1903/05/18), of Stumpf (=GP1906/05/07), of Viau (DR1907/03/21) and of Hazard (GP1919/12/01). And the end you will find some works mentioned in other sources.
My suggestions are based on title, theme and if available signature, dimensions, date, description and suggestions made in sources. Most suggestions are more or less uncertain (=? / =?? / =???), sometimes the suggestions are sure (=) or almost sure (=!?). I also try to make connections between the variouos exhibitions and auctions. For general info on Victor Vignon and the used sources see the main page. See link for the pictures exhibited in 1880, 1881, 1882 and 1886. See links for the pictures at the (solo) exhibitions and at the auctions. See also the links to a topographical overview and to a thematical overview.

General reviews:
A.E. (1880/04/05) in ‘La justice’ pointed out three titles (no.216, 222 or 224).
Armand Silvestre (1880/05/01) reviewed ‘Mr. Vignon belongs to the same category of classics in spite of themselves. His Effet de neige à Montesson (no.216) could have been signed by Lépine. That is to say that it is of a great delicacy of tone. His Chemin dans les vignes is more audacious, but betrays only a light preoccupation of M. Monet. Talent in Mr. Vignon, but very doubtful convictions.’ (R90I,p308)
Henry Trianon (1880/04/08) reviewed: ‘The landscapes of M. Vignon are more studies than paintings. There are three in particular to be mentioned: (he than shortly mentions / decripes no. 222, 224 and 218’ (R90I,p313).

Catalogue 1880: (R2,p314;iR1;R90I,p263)

5IE-1880-216, Effet de neige, Montesson
Berson refers to reviews of A.E. and Silvestre (R90II,p157). A.E. just mentioned the title (R90I,p276). Silvestre wrote that it ‘could have been signed by Lépine‘ (R90I,p308). Earlier that year this work was auctioned: 
HD1880/02/06-191, Culture à Montesson, offert par le Comte Borio (iR40). Montesson lies just west of Chatou, see no. 223. As an uncertain option I render: 1875-85ca, Snow effect in a suburb, Sbr, 25×33, CAI Williamstown (iR94;M26;R2,p314;iR1;R90I,p263;R90I,p308). =GP1919/12/01-223, Effet de neige dans un coin de banlieue, 25×33, Sbr (Former Hazard collection) (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30); Maybe? also: BJ1921-35, Coin de village en hiver (R272,p31).

5IE-1880-217, Rue à Clamart
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p157). Clamart lies about 11km south of the Notre-Dame in Paris (iR9). Vignon made several works in Clamart, also of the Rue Saint-Christophe, including one in 1875, but there are no old buildings to be seen on the streetview of this street. As an uncertain option I render:
1875, Sbl, Entrance to a Village (La route bordée d’arbres), 46×55, A1996/06/25 (iR2;iR13). Maybe: BJ1894-26, 1875, Rue Saint-Christophe, à Clamart. Appartiennent à M. Cahen (aR9=iR19).

5IE-1880-218, Chemin dans les vignes, étude
Berson refers to reviews of Silvestre and Trianon (R90II,p157). Silvestre calls it ‘more audacious, but betrays only a light preoccupation of M. Monet‘ (R90I,p308). Trianon wrote: ‘a ‘path in the vineyard’ with a stormy sky.’ (R90I,p313). To compare I render: 18xx, Vast landscape with vines, 22×29, A2018/07/12 (iR13;iR11), a work that has some similarities with Monet, but no stormy sky. In the sale of the Doria collection there was:
GP1899/05/04-236, Le chemin des vignes, à Hédouville (Seine-et-Oise), 31×46 ; 620fr. (former Comte Armand Doria collection) (aR14=iR40;R232;R154). Maybe it was the same as no.218.

5IE-1880-219, Chemin près Carrières-Saint-Denis
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p157). 
There is a Carrières-sur-Seine about 16km south-west of Saint-Denis and west of Paris. Vignon also has painted in Chatou, just south of Carrières-sur-Seine. There also is a Carrières-sur-Poissy, about 25km south of Auvers-sur-Oise. As far as I know Vignon didn’t paint in these neighbourhoods. Another possibility is that ‘carrières’ is meant to be a quarry. As a very uncertain option I render: 18xx, L’éclaircie (The clearing; Le sentier), 54×65, A1999/01/13 (iR13).

5IE-1880-220, Près les Gressets
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p157). There is a Chemin des Gressets in Louveciennes, where Vignon also has painted. There also is an Avenue des Gressets in La Celle Saint-Cloud, where Vignon also has painted. As a very uncertain suggestion I render: 1880-85 (1882ca), The turning road, 39×47, MF Aix-les-Bains (R272,no19;R89,p47;iR94); and also: 18xx, The Village Behind the Trees (village à travers les arbres), 33×40, A2010/03/25 (iR2;iR11;iR13).

5IE-1880-221, La Seine, près la Grenouillère
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p157). La Grenouillère was a famous bathing spot painted by Monet and Renoir in 1869. As uncertain options I render: 18xx, Paysage, 21×35, Meissner coll (aR8); and: 18xx, Boating on the river, 23×42, A2014/04/17 (iR13).

5IE-1880-222, Arbres fruitiers et maisons; appartiennent à M. Martin
Berson refers to reviews of A.E. and Trianon (R90II,p157). A.E. just mentioned part of the title (R90I,p276). Trianon writes: ‘An ‘orchard’ where the first breath of spring is already announced;’ (R90I,p313). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, Reed house in Cheneval, 33×46, A2019/12/05 (iR13) =?
GP1899/05/04-233, Chaumières à Chenival, 31×44; 820fr. (former Comte Armand Doria collection) (aR14=iR40;R232;R154).

5IE-1880-223, Chemin vert, près Chatou
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p157). Chatou lies about 18km west of Paris. As a very uncertain option I render: 1878-85 (1880-85), Chemin des frileuses à Evecquemont, 46×65, Orsay (aR1;iR23;R272,no1;M1); and also: Paysage de campagne, 39×56, A2013/11/16 (aR1;iR13;iR11).

5IE-1880-224, Carrières, près Chatou; appartiennent à M. Murat
Berson refers to reviews of A.E. and Trianon (R90II,p157). A.E. just mentioned as title ‘une Carrière’ (R90I,p276). Trianon just writes ‘A ‘study of a quarry’ (R90I,p313). Compare: 8IE-1886-230, Une carrière, Champagne; esquisse; appartient à M.  Beauvais. Compare also: 5IE-1880-219, Chemin près Carrières-Saint-Denis; Carrières-sur-Seine lies just north of Chatou, see no.219. To compare I render: cp1887-89, The Quarry, 26×35, A1987/10/21 (R272,no30;iR13) =?
BJ1894-9, 1888, Carrières à Nesles (aR9=iR19).

General reviews:
Paul de Charry (1881/04/22) reviewed: ‘Mr. Vignon sometimes forgets that he is intransigent and makes landscapes of perfect finish, such as …’, he than just mentions several titles (R90I,p334).

Catalogue 1881: (R2,p356;iR1;R90I,p328)

6IE-1881-151, Paysage
6IE-1881-152, Paysage
These works are left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p187). As very uncertain options I render: 1878ca, Sbl, The haystack, 56×66, Leighton Gallery (iR317;iR310;iR64); and: 1880-90, The haystacks, 38×55, private (R272,no26).

6IE-1881-153, Chemin des Bourbiers, neige fondue
Eng.: road at Bourbiers, melted snow. Berson refers to the review of de Charry (R90II,p187), who only mentioned the title. There are several roads with this name, the Chemin des Bourbiers in Bougival is most likely meant (iR9). As a very uncertain option I render: 18xx, La route vers le village dans la neige, 33×46, A2007/12/14 (iR13;iR11).

6IE-1881-154, Chemin à la Celle Saint-Cloud
La Celle Saint-Cloud lies south of Bougival, about 20km west of Paris (iR9). This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p187). As a very uncertain suggestion I render: 1880-85ca, Sbl, L’orée du village, 33×41, A2021/03/30 (iR17); and also: 18xx, Rue du village, 33×41, A2008/09/10 (iR11;iR13). Compare these works with: HD1905/04/10-46, Sl, Entrée de village, 33×41, former M. Louis Flornoy collection (iR40;R240).

6IE-1881-155, La Seine à Port-Marly
Berson refers to the review of de Charry (R90II,p187), who only mentioned the title. As an uncertain option I render:  18xx, sur la fleuve, 18×25, A2009/10/28 (iR13;iR11). It depicts the old paper factory to the left and the washhouse to the right, also many times depicted by Pissarro (R116,CCP229+236) and Sisley (R129,CR72+160+177+326). Note: 7IE-1882-191 + 200 have the same titles. The suggestions I make are interchangeable. Le Port-Marly lies about 22km west of Paris, just west of Bougival.

6IE-1881-156, Saulaie à Bougival
Eng.: willow at Bougival. This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p187). Bougival lies about 20km west of Paris, just east of Port-Marly. No. 163 and 7IE-1882-195 were also made in Bougival. I render two options: 18xx, Pollarded willows in a summer landscape, on panel, 27×40, A2016/06/24 (iR13;iR11;iR2); and: 1879, Les ormes (Elm trees), on wood, 11×23, A1999/05/30 (R272,no6;iR13). The last one is also on option for 7IE-1882-201, Étude d’arbres (Île de Croissy), and: GP1899/05/04-241, Les Saules, 15×24, former Comte Armand Doria collection (aR14=iR40;R232;R154).

6IE-1881-157, Arbres fruitiers à la Ferté-Milon, Aisne
Berson refers to the review of de Charry (R90II,p187), who only mentioned the title ‘arbres fruitiers’, but this could also refer to no.162. Ferté-Milon in the Aisne district, lies about 80km north-east of Paris (iR9). I render a very uncertain option: 18xx, Paysage de campagne, 33×46, A2014/06/28 (iR13), but actually I think this work was made later than 1881.

6IE-1881-158, Chemin de Bouzanleu, Aisne
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p187). There now is a Rue Bouzanleux in Noroy-sur-Ourcq (iR9), leading in the direction of Chouy. Compare: HD1914/06/12-75, Le vieux chemin de Chouy à Noroy-sur-Ourcq (Aisne), 15×27, Sbr, 50fr (former Roger Marx collection) (R272,p30). Probably: 18xx, Le chemin de Chauny à Noroy-sur-Ourcq, 16×27, A2003/12/16 (iR13). Maybe also: BJ1894-68, 1872, Une Rue à Noroy. (aR9=iR19).

(Former Viau collection) (R272,p30;aR7=iR261). There is a Rue de Montbuisson in Louveciennes, that crosses the Rue Saint-Michel, where now is the station. Louveciennes was part of the former department Seine-et-Oise (iR3). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, Rue du village animée, 25×36, A2005/06/15 (iR13).

6IE-1881-160, Noroy-sur-Ourcq
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p187). Noroy-sur-Ourcq, lies about 90km north-east of Paris, about 10km north-east of Ferté-Milon. As a very uncertain option I render: 18xx, L’entrée du village, 27×35, A2014/02/16 (iR13).

See also no.165 at Jonchère. La Jonchère is the name of the hill at the east-side of Bougival. There is a Avenue de la Jonchère in La Celle Saint-Cloud, east of Bougival. Berson refers to the review of de Charry (R90II,p187), who only mentioned the title ‘arbres fruitiers’, but this could also refer to no.157. As a very uncertain option I render: 18xx, Apple Tree in Bloom (arbre dans un champs), 32×41, A2014/12/15 (iR2;iR11;iR13); this work is also an option for: BJ1921-7, Pommier au milieu d’un champ (R272,p31).

General reviews:
Hustin (1882/03/03) just points out no. 189, 199, 191/200 and 194, by mentioning the titles (R90I,p395).
Hustin (1882/03/10) mentions the titles of no. 189, 194, 199, 191/200 to remember (R90I,p396).
La Fare (1882/03/02) reviewed ‘The landscapes of M. Victor Vignon are very similar to those of M. Pissaro (sic); they are only painted more finely, more delicately; la Seine à Port-Marly and les Champs de grès are very well achieved.’ (R90I,p401).
Meurville (1882/03/21) reviewed ‘Mr. Victor Vignon is a born talent, seeking the absurd to make himself known, as so many philosophers have used paradox to make a name for themselves. Les Chaumières à Auvers (no.190) shows a sense of colour and a feeling for nature; I like this as much as some of the syndicated Corots, advocated with great fanfare and carried at a price reminiscent of the insane prices of certain values. The Corot crash! We will see that one day.’ (R90I,p404).
Jean de Nivelle (1882/03/04) reviewed ‘Finally, we find the eternal purple spring in the Bois de Louveciennes (no.192) of M. Vignon, the criminal author of a study with four pencils, the head of a teenager who would have been happy with only one, so much it looks martyred, almost spread out, in a word drawn with four pencils’ (no.203).
Henri Rivière (1882/04/08) reviewed ‘Les Chaumières à Auvers (no.190) and  une Route au Val-Hermé (no.189), are nice little studies, delicately treated and of a very fine tone.’ (R90I,p409).
Armand Sallanches (1882/03/03) reviewed ‘M. Vignon is inspired by the same source as M. Pissarro, but he is less strong in composition but more brilliant in colour. His ‘Plaine à Rueil’ (no.199) and ‘La Seine à Bougival’ (no.195) are well illuminated. ‘Pommes et raisins’ (no.194) is well treated, but one does not know where to find the center of gravity that keeps them on the table.’ (R90I,p412).
Armand Silvestre (1882/03/11) reviewed ‘With a little more scope in the execution, Mr. Vignon would satisfy me more. His painting resembles a little too much the works in hair. His best submissions seem to me to be Champ aux grès (no.197) and la Sente d’Auvers (no.193).’ (R90I,p414).

Catalogue 1882: (R2,p394;iR1;R90I,p377)

7IE-1882-189, Une route au val Hermé; , appartient à M. R.
Berson refers to the reviews of Hustin (2x) and Rivière (R90II,p214). Hustin just mentioned the title (R90I,p395/6). Rivière just generally describes: ‘are nice little studies, delicately treated and of a very fine tone.’ (R90I,p409). Le Valhermeil lies just south of Auvers-sur-Oise (iR9). In titles of Vignon it is written in different ways: Val Hermay, Val-Hermé, Val-Hermoy, Vallermé. See also 7IE-1886-231. I render two uncertain options: 1880, The Hamlet of Valhermeil near Auvers-sur-Oise, 54×65, MBH Bayonne (iR2;iR59); and: 18xx, A route de Valhermeil near, Auvers-sur-Oise, 33×47, A2010/12/21 (iR13).

7IE-1882-190, Les chaumières à Auvers, appartient à M. D.
Berson refers to the reviews of Meurville and Rivière (R90II,p214). Meurville reviewed ‘shows a sense of colour and a feeling for nature; I like this as much as some of the syndicated Corots’ (R90I,p404). Rivière just generally describes: ‘are nice little studies, delicately treated and of a very fine tone.’ (R90I,p409). As a very uncertain option I render: 1880-90, House at three wells (puits), Auvers-sur-Oise, 46×54, private (aR1;R272,no28); actually this work doesn’t look much like a Corot. Neither does an even more uncertain option: 18xx, Entrance to a Village (Entrée du village), 39×46, A2006/03/23 (iR2;iR14;iR13).

7IE-1882-191, La Seine à Port-Marly
Berson refers to the reviews of La Fare and Hustin (2x) (R90II,p214), but this could also refer to no.200. Hustin just mentioned the title (R90I,p395/6), so does La Fare (R90I,p401). As an uncertain suggestion I render: H&S1938-25 =? HD1905-47, Bords de la Seine, 27×40, Sl, 550fr Stumpf  (former M. Louis Flornoy collection), bought by Stumpf for 550fr. (iR40;R240). It depicts the old paper factory to the left and the washhouse to the right, also many times depicted by Pissarro (CCP229+236) and Sisley (CR72+160+177+326). Note: no.200 has the same title, so does 5IE-1881-155 . The suggestions I make are interchangeable.

7IE-1882-192, Louveciennes
Berson refers to the reviews of de Nivelle (R90II,p214), who reviewed ‘we find the eternal purple spring in the forest of Louveciennes’ (R90I,p407). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, Spring Landscape, 49×65, A2005/01/19 (iR2;iR14;iR13); it doesn’t really depict a forest, but it renders a lot of purples.

7IE-1882-193, La Sente d’Auvers
Eng.: the (foot) path in Auvers. See also 8IE-1886-234bis and compare other footpaths: 8IE-1886-220, 222, 234ter. Berson refers to the review of Silvestre (R90II,p214), who calls it one of his best submissions (R90I,p414). As an uncertain option I render: 1880ca, Sbl, Figures in a village street, Auvers-sur-Oise, 36×46, xx; and also: 18xx, View of Auvers-sur-Oise, 32×41, A2017/05/19 (iR2;iR11;iR41).

7IE-1882-194, Pommes et raisins
Eng.: Apples and grapes. Berson refers to the reviews of Hustin (2x) and Sallanches (R90II,p214). Hustin just mentioned the title (R90I,p395/6). Sallanches reviewed that it ‘is well treated, but one does not know where to find the center of gravity that keeps them on the table.’ (R90I,p412). To compare I render: 18xx, Pommes et pichet (Apples and a pitcher), 81×114, MuMa Le Havre (HW;iR2;M15).

7IE-1882-195, La Seine à Bougival
Bougival lies about 20km west of Paris, just east of Port-Marly. 6IE-1881-156+163 were also made in Bougival. Compare also: S1878-2243, La Seine à Bougival, un jour de printemps (iR1) . Berson refers to the review of Sallanches (R90II,p214), who calls it ‘well illuminated’. (R90I,p412). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, Bateaux sur la rivière, 32×46, A1989/02/16 (iR13). In the distance one can see the ‘Machine de Marly’, compare Sisley (R129,CR67) and Pissarro (R116,CCP234). Compare also: 6IE-1880-221, 6IE-1881-155 and 7IE-1882-191 + 200, al depicting the Seine.

7IE-1882-196, Le chemin de la Princesse
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p214). There is a Chemin de la Princesse in Neuville-sur-Oise. And there is a Rue de la Princesse in Louveciennes, what is the prolonged road to the north of the Rue de Montbuisson, see 6IE-1881-159. As a very uncertain suggestion I render: 1882 (HW85), La route du village au printemps (~à Ricarda), 38×46, A2017/11/22 (iR11;iR2;iR13); note the given date is not very clear.

7IE-1882-197, Les champs aux grès
Eng.: the fields of sandstone. Berson refers to the reviews of La Fare and Silvestre (R90II,p214). La Fare just mentions the title (R90I,p401). Silvestre calls it one of his best submissions (R90I,p414). As a very uncertain suggestion I render: 18xx, Sbl, Village aux creux d’un vallon, xx, MGSm Saarbrücken (iR94). Compare: BJ1894-61, 1883, La Vieille sente, aux Grès. (aR9=iR19). Note: there is a Rue du Gré in Auvers-sur-Oise.

7IE-1882-198, Nature morte
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p214). As a very uncertain option I render: 1880-90, Still-life with a glass, 13×22, private (R272,no24).

7IE-1882-199, Plaine de Rueil
Berson refers to the reviews of Hustin (2x) and Sallanches (R90II,p214). Hustin just mentioned the title (R90I,p395/6). Sallanches calls it ‘well illuminated’ (R90I,p412). Rueil-Malmaison lies north-east of Bougival and Le Celle-Saint-Cloud. As an uncertain option I render: 1878-85, Factories at Nanterre, 22×33, MF Aix-les-Bains (iR94;R272,p8;M13), Nanterres lies just north of Rueil-Malmaison (iR9).

7IE-1882-200, La Seine à Port Marly
Berson refers to the reviews of La Fare and Hustin (2x) (R90II,p214), but this could also refer to no.191. Hustin just mentioned the title (R90I,p395/6), so does La Fare (R90I,p401). As an uncertain option I suggest: GP1919/12/01-218, Déchargement au bord d’un canel, 45×65, Sbl, (Hazard coll) (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30). It depicts the old paper factory to the left and the washhouse to the right, also many times depicted by Pissarro (R116,CCP229+236) and Sisley (R129,CR72+160+177+326). Note: no.191 has the same title, so does 5IE-1881-155. The suggestions I make are interchangeable.

7IE-1882-201, Étude d’arbres (Île de Croissy)
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p214). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, L’isle de Croissy, peupliers, 44×33, A1999/06/28 (iR13).

7IE-1882-202, Les chaumières
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p214). As uncertain options I render: 18xx, Garden in the Village (Jardin devant le village; les chaumières), 33×41, A2014/05/16 (iR2;iR11;iR13) =? HD1913/12/17-85, Les chaumières (iR40); and: 18xx, Sbr, La Vie Champêtre (La Maison de Guillaume et Danielle), 33×46, A2021/04/17 (iR17) and: 18xx, Sbr, Maisons dans la forêt, 46×56, A1987/10/21 (iR13); =?? GP1919/12/01-243, Le potager derrière la maisonnette, 46×55, Sbr (Former Hazard collection) (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30).

7IE-1882-203, Étude, quatre crayons
Berson refers to the review of de Nivelle (R90II,p214), who reviewed ‘M. Vignon, the criminal author of a study with four pencils, the head of a teenager who would have been happy with only one, so much it looks martyred, almost spread out, in a word drawn with four pencils’ (no.203). I couldn’t find a suggestion.

General reviews:
Félix Fénénon (1886/06-13-20) reviewed: ‘Mr. Paul-Victor Vignon, a very lingering impressionist who, for years, has been piling up rocks, trees and houses in invariable and dull compositions.’ (R90I,p442;R9;R88).
Henry Fèvre (1886/05-06) reviewed ‘M. Vignon puts much less emphasis on his light than his colleagues; his ardour is also less blurred; intransigence is blunt. Besides, M. Vignon does not serve us nature in a roast, on a scorching midday, but he gives it to us in herbs, surprising his landscapes clearly and freshly, a hillside full of crops (no.226), a mill (no.221), a chapel (no.218 / 224), a farm, in a silky morning air (no.229), in a pitiful and debilitating flash of March (no.218), in an atmosphere that is always subdued, at the hours and times of shyness when the sun is blinking.’ (R90I,p446).
Gustave Geffroy (1886/05/26) reviewed ‘M. Paul Vignon is also an emotional and sincere landscaper, a breed that is becoming rare. He frequents Jouy, Auvers-sur-Oise, Vaux-sur-Oise; he loves the hills that stand like walls, the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass. What beautiful and melancholy things this Côte Saint-Nicolas en hiver (no.219), this Côteau des Grande-Nises (no.226)! What sweet peace and quiet in this Val-Hermay (no.231) with its bluish houses.’ (R90I,p450).

Catalogue 1886: (R2,p447;iR1;R90I,p425)

8IE-1886-218, L’Église de Jouy, effet de soleil, mars
Compare no. 224. Berson refers to the review of Fèvre (R90II,p254), who according to Berson just calls it a chapel. But a later description more clearly refers to this no. 218: ‘in a pitiful and debilitating flash of March’, adding in general or specific to this number: ‘ in an atmosphere that is always subdued, at the hours and times of shyness when the sun is blinking.’ (R90I,p446). Geffroy referred that Vignon frequented Jouy (R90I,p450). Maybe: 18xx, L’église de Jouy-le-Comte, 33×46, A2010/03/10 (iR11;iR13) =? GP1899/05/04-248, L’Église de Jouy-le-Comte (Vue du chemin du Cimetière), 31×45, former Comte Armand Doria collection (aR14=iR40;R232;R154).

8IE-1886-219, La Côte Saint-Nicolas (hiver), à Auvers-sur-Oise
Berson refers to the review of Geffroy (R90II,p254), who just mentioned part of the title. In general he reviewed: ‘he loves the hills that stand like walls’ (R90I,p450). Maybe: 1883, The Côte Saint-Nicolas at Auvers, 36×44, Copenhagen NCG (R89,p61). This is the same as: BJ1894-59, 1883, La Côte Saint-Nicolas à Auvers-sur-Oise; Appartiennent à M. Roger Marx. (aR9=iR19), and: MJ1914/05/11-81, 1883, La Côte Saint-Nicolas à Auvers-sur-Oise, 35×44, SDbr (BJ1894-expo; former Roger Marx collection) (R272,p30;aR7=iR261). Monneret calls the geometrical composition of this work influenced by Cézanne (R88II,p79).

8IE-1886-220, La Vieille Sente, à Four
Eng.: the old footpath at Four. This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450). In the sale of the Stumpf collection (1906/05/07) no.89 was: 1884, SDbr, Le vieux chemin à Four, 26×36  (R272,p30). Maybe this was the same work; I will render a black and white picture of it. But in 1881 Vignon also made a work called ‘Le Chemin de Four’ (BJ1894-44; aR9), in 1882 ‘Maison à Four’ (BJ1894-77; aR9). In auction sales 3 times ‘Le chemin de Four à Auvers’ appears, the first two were the same work (GP1900/06/11-99 and GP1906/05/07-88; 32×40/41, Sbl), the latter messured 33×46, but was signed at the right (MJ1914/05/11-82). The black and white copy of the GP1906 work resembles a work that is now called ‘Le chemin de cour’, 34×41, Sbr, which I will render to compare. Note: the title doesn’t seem correct, because there is no rue or chemin de Cour (=courtyard) known in Auvers, so I assume this is a writing error. There also isn’t a small town called ‘Four’. So I assume ‘Four’ was a small hamlet belonging to Auvers-sur-Oise and that there also was a ‘chemin de Four’ (=oven). There now is a larger Rue de Four in Auvers-sur-Oise, still the first part from the Rue François Coppée is quite small (iR9).

8IE-1886-221, L’ancien moulin de Jouy, soleil d’Avril
Berson refers to the review of Fèvre (R90II,p254), who just calls it a ‘mill’ (R90I,p446). Geffroy referred that Vignon frequented Jouy (R90I,p450). To compare I render a watercolour of a watermill: 18xx, le moulin, wc, 28×43, A2015/02/26 (iR11;iR10).

8IE-1886-222, La Sente, à Chaponval
Eng.: footpath at Chaponval. About the same title as 1886-234ter. This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450). Chaponval was probably in Vignon’s days a hamlet, belonging to Auvers sur Oise (iR9). Nowadays there is a Rue de Chaponval that leads to the Oise (iR9). As an uncertain option I render: 1885ca, Village Street (Rue du village), 38×46, A2005/09/13 (iR2;iR13).

8IE-1886-223, Champs, près la rue Boucher, à Auvers, printemps
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). See map for the Rue Boucher in Auvers-sur-Oise (iR9). As a very uncertain option I render: 1882, Peasant woman in the fields, 55×66, MF Aix-les-Bains (iR94;R89,p47;R272,p29); and also: 18xx, Sbl, Spring in Auvers sur Oise, 38×46, Fonseca Galerie (iR10). 

8IE-1886-224, Église du Jouy, Mai
Compare no. 218. This work is left out by Berson, which would mean that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). But still Fèvre mentions ‘a chapel’, which according to Berson refers to no. 218. But another description refers clearer to no.218, so that leaves the description ‘a chapel’ to no.224 (R90I,p446). Still, the description ‘chapel’ doesn’t fit the ‘église Saint-Denis’ in Jouy-le-Comte looks like a quit solid church and not like a little chapel (iR4). Geffroy referred that Vignon frequented Jouy (R90I,p450), which lies 8km north of Auves-sur-Oise, see map (iR9). To compare I render: 1885, Village near Auvers-sur-Oise, xx, xx (aR1). Note: the church has similarities with the church of Jouy-le-comte, but the background is (probably) the valley of the Oise instead of hills, that can be seen on no. 218. To compare I also render: 18xx, L’église en Automne, 33×41, H&S1938-23 (R273), a work probably depicting the church of Jouy and resembling other works made in Jouy, but made in Autumn instead of May. 

8IE-1886-225, Près la rue Remy, hiver, Auvers-sur-Oise
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450), but this doesn’t probably refer to this winter landscape. To compare I render another work from the rue Remy: 18xx, Rue Remy à Auvers-sur-Oise, 33×47, A2008/12/22 (aR1;iR13), a work that was not done in winter. Compare also BJ1894-225. Trublot, who visited Vignon in 1887 saw a work of him called Rue Rémy, à Auvers and was described as ‘a quiet corner of calmness’ (aR13=iR40). See link for the location of Rue Remy (iR9).

8IE-1886-226, Le coteau des Grandes-Nises, vu du marais, à Jouy
Eng.: The Grandes-Nises hillside, seen from the marsh, in Jouy. Berson refers to the review of Fèvre and Geffroy (R90II,p254). Fèvre describes it as a ‘hillside full of crops’ (R90I,p446). Geffroy just mentioned the first part of the title, but in general he reviewed ‘he loves the hills that stand like walls’ (R90I,p450). I couldn’t find a location called Grandes-Nises. As an uncertain suggestion I render two variations of the same scene: 1886, SDbl, Hameau de Jouy-le-Comte, 33×41, GP1906/05/07-85 Stumpf coll (aR1;aR17); and: 1884-88ca, Sbr, Hameau de Jouy-le-Comte, 33×41, A2020/11/06 (iR45;iR10;aR1).

8IE-1886-227, Maisons, effet du matin
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). As an uncertain option I render: 1880-90, Landscape in winter (Groupe de maisons), 33×46, A2000/10/24 (R272,no22;iR15;iR64;R273;R2,p447;iR1;R90I,p425) = 18xx, H&S1938-27, Groupe de maisons, 46×38 (R273). More uncertain options are: 1885, Woman in front of a Farm House (farmers wife near the house), 41×32, A2007/03/15 (iR2;iR13); and: 1880s, View of a village in Normandy, xx, Baltimore MA (iR94).

8IE-1886-228, Un chemin vert, à Orrouy
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450). At the auction of the Hazard collection (GP1919/12/01-231) there was this work: 1884, L’église d’Orrouy, 32×46, SD-  (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30). The date of 1884 makes it an option for 8IE-1886-228. As another uncertain option I render: 18xx, Dans le parc d’Orrouy, 33×41, A1999/03/31 (iR13). See map for the location of église Saint-Remy in Orrouy (iR9). Orrouy lies about 75km north to Paris and that is where Comte Armand Doria also lived (R99I,p203), but there was no work in the posthumous sale of his collection, that resembles no.228 (see below). I know only two titles located in Orrouy, does this mean that Vignon didn’t frequent comte Doria much?

8IE-1886-229, Une ferme, vue du Codru, à Jouy; appartient à M. Brulé
Berson refers to the review of Fèvre (R90II,p254), who calls it ‘a farm, in a silky morning air’ (R90I,p446). Geffroy referred that Vignon frequented Jouy (R90I,p450). I couldn’t find a location called Codru (iR9). As an uncertain option I render: 18xx, Le village de Jouy (-en-Josas), été, 33×46, SM Laren (HW18;iR24) = ?? BJ1894-22, Petite Ferme à Jouy-Le-Comte (aR9=iR19). Compare also: 1895-1900, Le Hameau au Printemps, 33×46, A2018/12/04 (iR2;iR11;iR13), probably depicting the same spot. Another option is: 18xx, Cour de ferme (Farmyard), 47×55, A2019/02/28 (iR13;iR17;iR316). Compare: GP1919/12/01-232, 1875, SDbr, Cour de ferme, 65×55, former Hazard collection (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30).

8IE-1886-230, Une carrière, Champagne; esquisse ; appartient à M.  Beauvais
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). Maybe the same as: BJ1894-33, 1885, Carrières à Champagne; automne; Appartiennent à M. le comte Doria. (aR9=iR19); and: GP1899/05/04-232, 1885, Vaux, près de Champagne (Seine-et-Oise), 35×38 ; 500fr. (former Comte Armand Doria collection) (aR14=iR40;R232;R154). Champagne-sur-Oise lies about 10km north of Auvers-sur-Oise (iR9), I couldn’t find an old quarry in the neighbourhood. To compare I render: 1880-90, Abandoned quarry at Noguets, 46×55, private (R272,no23).

8IE-1886-231, Au Val-Hermay
Berson refers to the review of Geffroy (R90II,p254), who reviewed: ‘What sweet peace and quiet in this Val-Hermay with its bluish houses.’ (R90I,p450). I render: 1885ca, Sbr, The village road, 33×41, A2015/05/15 (iR11;iR15;iR13;iR2), a work that is not located, but that has typical bluish houses and was recently made. Le Valhermeil lies just south of Auvers-sur-Oise (iR9). In titles of Vignon it is written in different ways: Val Hermay, Val-Hermé, Val-Hermoy, Vallermé. See also 7IE-1882-189, Une route au val Hermé, appartient à M. R.

8IE-1886-232, Vaux-sur-Oise ; appartient à M. André
This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). Still Geffroy mentioned Vignon frequented Vaux-sur-Oise (R90I,p450). There is a Rue de Vaux in Parmain / Jouy-le-Comte (iR9). Maybe the same work as: BJ1894-78, 1884, Vaux-sur-Oise; Appartiennent à M. le docteur Viau (aR9=iR19). To compare I render: 1894, Hameau de Vaux-sur-Oise, 33×41, A2012/09/22 (iR13). Compare also: BJ1894-30, 1885, La Route de Vaux; effet de soleil, automne (aR9=iR19); and: BJ1894-75, 1885, Chaumières à Vaux; Appartiennent à M. Tavernier (aR9=iR19). As a very uncertain option I also render: 18xx, Rural landscape, 43×51, A2016/12/13 (iR11;iR13).

(8IE-1886-233, left out)
The catalogue doesn’t mention a number 233.

8IE-1886-234, Auvers, la côte ; appartient à M. Aubry
Berson mentions this work is probably the same as in the Aubry sale at Georges Petit 1897/05/10, no.39: 1884, Sbr, La Côte Saint-Nicholas à Auversn (sic), 65×54 (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed: ‘he loves the hills that stand like walls’ (R90I,p450). Vignon made several works at the Côte Saint-Nicolas, see also no.219. To compare I render: 1883, Saint-Nicolas, vallée de l’Oise, 33×46, A2018/07/08 (iR11) =? BJ1894-59, 1883, La Côte Saint-Nicolas à Auvers-sur-Oise; Appartiennent à M. Roger Marx (aR9=iR19) = MJ1914/05/11-81, 1883, La Côte Saint-Nicolas à Auvers-sur-Oise, 35×44, SDbr (BJ1894-expo; former Roger Marx collection) (R272,p30;aR7=iR261). To compare I also render: 18xx, Sbr, Le bord de l’Oise (banks of the Oise), 50×59, A2017/05/17 (iR11;iR14;iR13;iR2;R2,p447;iR1;R90I,p425), the location seems a bit the same.

8IE-1886-234bis, Sente d’Auvers
Eng.: footpath at Auvers. The same title as 7IE-1882-193. This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450). Trublot, who visited Vignon in 1887 saw a work of him called ‘Sente d’Auvers and he described it as ‘a wide bird’s eye view’ (aR13=iR40). Maybe it referred to no. 234bis. Maybe this is the same as BJ1921-20, Vue d’Auvers (R272,p31). As an uncertain option I render: 1878-85, Sbl, Landscape at Auvers-sur-Oise (houses in the valley), 34×42, Orsay (iR23;iR127;R272,no10;M1); and also: 1884, L’arbre à l’entrée du village, xx, MF Aix-les-Bains (iR94;M13). 

8IE-1886-234ter, Sente de Chaponval
Eng.: footpath at Chaponval. About the same title as 8IE-1886-222. This work is left out by Berson, which means that there were no reviews (R90II,p254). In general Geffroy reviewed ’the paths cluttered with vegetation, the streets of hamlets all green with grass.’ (R90I,p450). As very uncertain options I render: 1884, Climbing Path on Edge of Village, 38×46, A2011/11/04 (iR2;iR11;iR13); and: 1885 (or 1886), Sbl, Landscape with a carriage, 46×38, A1996/04/30 (R272,p4;iR15). A more certain option is: 18xx, L’entrée du village, 42×34, A2012/12/03 (iR13;R2,p447;iR1;R90I,p425) =? GP1919/12/01-230, Le vieux chemin de Chaponval, 41×32, Sbr (Former Hazard collection) (aR18=iR19;R232;R272,p30) =?? GJ1894-47, 1881, Le Chemin de Chaponval (aR9=iR19).

There was also a Claude Vignon, a sculptor born in Paris, who exhibited at the Salon and a Henri-François-Jules de Vignon, born in Belfort (Haut-Rhin). There also was a Paul(-Joseph-Victor) Vignon, born in Lyon, who exhibited at the Salon of 1905 and at the SNBA in 1897, 1908 and 1909. (iR1)
