Gustave Caillebotte (1848 - 1894)

The French painter Caillebotte was an engineer by profession, but also attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. He met Degas, Monet, and Auguste Renoir in 1874 and helped organize the first impressionist exhibition in Paris that same year. He painted some 500 works in a more realistic style than that of his friends. His works, until recently, were neglected.
