Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)
French painter and patron of the impressionists, whose own works, until recently, were neglected. He was an engineer by profession. He met Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, and Pierre Auguste Renoir in 1874 and helped organize the first impressionist exhibition in Paris. He painted 500 works in a more realistic style than his friends. Caillebotte's most intriguing paintings are those of the new Parisian boulevards. Caillebotte's superb collection of impressionist paintings was left to the French government.
