Caillebotte, Gustave - Museo Thyssen - Bornemisza

Gustave Caillebotte: Painter and Gardener

This summer, the Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in collaboration with the Musée des Impressionismes in Giverny is presenting an exhibition (19. July 2016 - 30.10.2016) on the artist 

one of the least known but also most original figures of the Impressionist movement. Curated by Marina Ferretti, director of Exhibitions and Research at the Musée des Impressionismes in Giverny, the exhibition includes a total of 65 works loaned from private collections and international museums.
Caillebotte, Painter and Gardener reveals this French artist's thematic and stylistic evolution, from his early works painted in Haussmann's modern Paris to his depictions of gardens, which would come to occupy a significant part of his output. For many years Caillebotte was principally recognised for his role as a patron and supporter of the Impressionist movement. For some decades, however, the importance of Caillebotte's creative activities have also been acknowledged, and he is now considered one of the most notable members of the group.
