Gustave Caillebotte Though largely out of the public eye for than a century Gustave Caillebotte 1848–94 has come to be recognized as one of the most dynamic and original artists of the impressionist movement in Paris His paintings are favorites of museum goers and recent restoration of his work has revealed color texture and detail than was visible before while heightening interest in all of Caillebotte’s artwork This lush companion volume to the National Gallery of Art’s major new exhibition coorganized with the Kimbell Art Museum explores the power and technical brilliance of his oeuvre The book features fifty of Caillebotte’s strongest paintings including post conservation images of Paris Street; Rainy Day along with The Floorscrapers and Pont de l’Europe all of which date from a particularly fertile period between 1875 and 1882 The artist was criticized at the time for being too realistic and not impressionistic enough but he was a pioneer in adopting the angled perspective of a modern camera to compose his scenes Caillebotte’s skill and originality are evident even in the book’s reproductions and the essays offer critical insights into his inspiration and subjects This sumptuously illustrated publication makes clear why Caillebotte is among the most intriguing artists of nineteenth century France and it deepens our understanding of the history of impressionism

    An engaging series of essays that accompanies the National Gallery of Art's 2015 exhibition on Gustave Caillebotte In addition to analyzing the works themselves the essays look at the political and social climate of Paris Caillebotte's relationship with the Impressionists how his reputation has changed over time and his connections to family and home The exhibition itself is very good and this book makes an excellent companion I was tempted to take one star off though for the terrible binding in the hardback edition At 60 I shouldn't be able to see the string that holds the sections together
