By 1881, a scant half dozen years
after the Impressionists had held their first group exhibit in Paris,
Impressionism had begun to pale. The critic for Le Figaro,
always outspoken, ho-hummed the sixth exhibit held that year. Though
stated somewhat more elegantly, his message was unmistakable: Once
you'd seen one (Impressionist painter) you'd seen them all. Only 13
artists participated, down from 30 in the first exhibit in 1874, and
most of these were new. Monet, Sisley, and Renoir failed to exhibit.
