One of the most important French Impressionists has been rediscovered: Gustave Caillebotte, the passionate painter.
Even art lovers are not intimately familiar with French Impressionist Gustave Caillebotte (1848–1894), despite his name being firmly linked with those of Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro. Caillebotte worked closely with his artist friends and exhibited his work alongside theirs; however, he first gained prominence as a passionate collector of their paintings.This publication is an invitation to (re)discover an important Impressionist, who for at least the past fifteen years has been widely celebrated as the painter of the modern metropolis of Paris. Caillebotte was also an avid rower and sailor, and for the first time, the focus is on his marked preference for river scenes and seascapes: colorful, glowing depictions of rowers on the Yerres; of the Normandy coast, the banks of the Seine, and the sailboats at Argenteuil. Approximately fifty paintings, drawings, contemporary photographs, and construction sketches and models for yachts create a comprehensive impression of his key works.
