Boom: Mad Money, Mega Dealers, and the Rise of Contemporary Art | Manet and Modern Beauty: The Artist's Last Years | Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice | Tintoretto: Artist of Renaissance Venice | Frederic Bazille and the Birth of Impressionism | Ninth Street Women | Vincent Van Gogh | Gustave Caillebotte
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.
About: Though largely out of the public eye for more 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.
