"Caillebotte, a painter and a gardener" at the Museum of Impressionism, Giverny.
Long considered as an amateur painter, collector and patron of his friends,
Gustave Caillebotte appears today as a major figure of the Impressionist group. Famous for his inspired compositions of the Haussmannian Paris, he devoted a significant part of its work to the evocation of gardens. He painted his first studies on the pattern in the family home of Yerres before acquiring the Petit-Gennevilliers, a property where he developed a beautiful garden and built a greenhouse. Like his friend Claude Monet, with whom he shares a passion for horticulture, he favors the evocation of the vegetal world.
