Notes:  "Whilst reminding visitors of Jongkind's journeys across the Netherlands, France, as far as to Geneva, the exhibition focuses on the Dauphiné watercolours, which remain the best and most natural expressions of his art. The homage paid is all the more expressive as the exhibition is drawn essentially from regional collections, which are often locally the least known and surprisingly rich in content..."
Jean Leymarie, Curator, Musée de Grenoble
Date:  October, November and December 1941
Town:  Grenoble (Isère - Dauphiné)
Location:  Musée de Grenoble
Catalogue:  A catalogue with 25 black and white reproductions and the list of the 271 works on display, 112 of which depict the Dauphiné.
Notes:  "...The exhibition marking the 50th anniversary of Jongkind's death would have been even more impressive if France had not been cut into two, with communications difficult between the occupied and unoccupied zones. The foreign-owned collections are also not represented. The organisers were therefore limited to works within the unoccupied zone and to those that collectors from the occupied areas had been able to bring with them..."
