The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza in collaboration with the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny is presenting an exhibition on the artist Gustave Caillebotte (Paris, 1848 - Petit Gennevilliers, 1894), one of the least known but also most original figures of the Impressionist movement. 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.
Curated by Marina Ferretti, director of Exhibitions and Research at the Musée des Impressionnismes Giverny, the exhibition includes a total of 65 works loaned from private collections and international museums including the Marmottan Monet in Paris, the Brooklyn Museum in new York and the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The works on display are presented in four sections corresponding to periods in the artist´s life: Haussmann´s Paris, world of stone; Sojourns in Yerres; The Seine and the Exploration of Normandy; and The Garden at Petit Gennevilliers.
