A stunning study of the life and work of Gustave Caillebotte, until recently the "forgotten man" of Impressionism but now recognised as one of the most interesting and attractive artists in the group and as the painter of some of its most powerful and memorable images. The book includes beautiful colour reproductions of all Caillebotte's most important works, his working drawings, and a selection of critical responses to his art when first shown.

About the Author:

Kirk Varnedoe is Chief Curator of the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.

From Publishers Weekly:

Caillebotte's wealth and youthfulness (he was 14 years younger than Degas) set him apart from the other French impressionists. A patron and publicist of the impressionist movement as well as a painter himself, he has been sorely neglected until recently. His pictures show us the world's sheer randomness as well as its patterns of order. Like Munch and Van Gogh, Caillebotte manipulated perspective to produce overwrought sensations of depth. He captured the boulevard's chaotic variety and the depersonalization of the modern city. His tautly focused realism, wide-angled spaces and cooly detached viewpoint upset his contemporaries, yet in today's cinematic culture his paintings resonate with familiarity. This superbly illustrated study by a New York University art professor does full justice, in text and pictures, to the "forgotten Impressionist."
