Portrait of an Artist: Gustave Caillebotte

Gustave Caillebotte: Although his name is not as widely known as Monet and Degas, Gustave Caillebotte was a pivotal figure in the development of Impressionism at the end of the 19th century. In this program, we will discuss Caillebotte’s role as a supporter of the Impressionists and collector of their works, but we will also explore his own fascinating, avant-garde paintings. We will discuss Caillebotte’s interests in photography, Japanese prints, and perception, and why his scenes of life in Paris have enjoyed a rise in popularity since his death. Presented by Ann Shifflet, Instructor at Columbus College of Art and Design.
