GUSTAVE CAILLEBOTTE: PAINTING THE PARIS OF NATURALISM, 1872-1887. Michael Marrinan. Getty Research Institute, Los Angeles, 2016. Distributed by University of Chicago Press. 402 pp. with 190 ills. (135 col.). 26 x 20 cm. LC 2016-16691 ISBN 9781606065075 In English.
Publisher's description: Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894), the son of a wealthy businessman, is perhaps best known as the painter who organized and funded several of the groundbreaking exhibitions of the Impressionist painters, collected their works, and ensured the Impressionists' presence in the French national museums by bequeathing his own personal collection. Trained at the .cole des Beaux-Arts and sharing artistic sympathies with his renegade friends, Caillebotte painted a series of extraordinary pictures inspired by the look and feel of modern Paris that also grappled with his own place in the Parisian art scene. Gustave Caillebotte: Painting the Paris of Naturalism, 1872-1887 is the first book to study the life and artistic development of this painter in depth and in the context of the urban life and upper-class Paris that shaped the man and his work. Michael Marrinan's ambitious study draws upon new documents and establishes compelling connections between Caillebotte's painting and literature, commerce, and technology.
