Caillebotte, au cœur de l'impressionisme

Caillebotte, in the heart of impressionism
From june 24 to october 23 2005
Modern art
With about a hundred paintings, pastels and drawings, this retrospective highlights just how essential Gustave Caillebotte’s (1848-1894) contribution was to Impressionism. Both as a painter – he took part in the Impressionist group’s exhibitions from 1876 to 1882 – and as a collector and patron of the arts, Caillebotte played a pivotal role at the heart of the movement. Very close to Renoir and Monet, he gave unfailing support to his friends and was very active in promoting the ‘New Painting’.
