    Gustave Caillebotte: French Painter


    Gustave Caillebotte is a well-known French artist who turned into a key part of the realism and impressionism artwork movements. Born on August 19, 1848 - Paris, France, Caillebotte also becomes an early example of photography which became an artwork form in its very own right, which had not been accomplished before at that time. 

     Paris-born Caillebotte produced many famous artworks from a long and prominent career, which lasted until his demise at the end of the nineteenth century. He was a distinguished artist by the second half of the century. He died on February 21, 1894, in Genne-Villiers, France. 

    Some of the well-known artworks of Gustave Caillebotte:

    Gustave Caillebotte’s can be found in many of the high-quality artwork museums around the globe. One of his most well-known oil art work included Paris StreetRainy DayJeunehomme a LA fenetreThe Man on the WindowLe pont de l'EuropeLe dejeuner Baigneurs'appretant a plonger, Dans un cafThe Floor ScrapersLes Perissoires

    Caillebotte was a top-notch collector artwork too, leaving his collections to the French government post his death, who have set it up in primary galleries and throughout the country, most commonly in the Louvre, Paris. 

     The series itself covered works through Camille Pissarro, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Alfred Sisley, Edgar Degas, Paul Cezanne, and Edouard Manet. Gustave Caillebotte was an exquisite realism artist with a vast portfolio of works covering the mid to late nineteenth century. He performed a position in the extremely popular rise of impressionism artwork as well. 

     While not as famous as artists from that motion, inclusive of Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro, or indeed post-impressionists like Vincent Van Gogh and Edvard Munch, Caillebotte remains reputable and remembered as an important artist who left a subtler legacy at the development of artwork at that time, especially in Paris and throughout France; many of the metropolitan museums of art in New York, also in the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam. 

     Caillebotte's early works show clear evidence of realism and naturalism, as exemplified through one of his high-quality regarded works from this era Floor-scrapers (1875, Musee d'Orsay, Paris). His favorite topics have been scenes of everyday contemporary Paris, in style pretty much like that of Edouard Manet and frequently cropped under the influence of photography. 

     His recognition grew many years after his death. His famous works include Young Man at his Window (1876, private series), Paris: A Rainy Day (1877, The Art Institute of Chicago), Rooftops in the Snow (1878, Musee d'Orsay), Yachts at Argenteuil (1888, Musee d'Orsay), when studies of his works discovered especially clever spatial construction.

     Reputation and Legacy of Gustave Caillebotte:

    Tragically, Caillebotte died from heart disease in 1894 at the young age of 45. For many years after his death, he was dismissed as an amateur artist, whose maximum contribution was to the general public collection he donated to the State on his death. He bequeathed sixty-five works - eight by Renoir, sixteen through Monet, five through Cezanne, and seven through Degas. 


    The French country rejected more than half of the paintings. Not until 1928 did the Louvre agree to accept the entire legacy. As it is, historians have, in the end, re-evaluated his oil painting and determined advantage where it was formerly overlooked. When the Art Institute of Chicago received the portrayal of Paris: A Rainy Day in 1964, it awakened interest on the other side of the Atlantic. In 2000, his portrayed Man on a Balcony, Boulevard Haussmann (1880) offered over $14m. In 2009 the Brooklyn Museum, New York, held Gustave Caillebotte's Impressionist Paintings from Paris to the Sea.
