Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye

On view from June 27 through October 4, 2015
National Gallery of Art

This exhibition organized by the National Gallery of Art explores Gustave Caillebotte's career, with a special attention to the years 1875 to 1882, that is to say when the painter worked most closely with the impressionnists.

By displaying a wide range of themes and subjects, from portraits and still lifes to the painter's renown cityscapes, the exhibition tends to protray an artist deeply sensitive to his surroundings, convinced "that the very great artists attach you even more to life", as Gustave Caillebotte once wrote to Monet.
