“Paris Street; Rainy Day” by Gustave Caillebotte exhibits the remarkable French artist's unique combination of Realism and Impressionist techniques. One of Caillebotte’s (1848 – 1894) best-known works, this piece reflects the mood of isolation and the effects of idleness upon a new, affluent urban economic class. An expressionless couple in the foreground ignore each other, the bleak gray and beige street is sparsely populated by people hunched under umbrellas, and expanses of open spaces intensify the lonely atmosphere. The daring composition of the work also demonstrates Caillebotte’s ability to translate photographic principles into painting.
Gustave Caillebotte (1848 – 1894) was a remarkable French artist who combined elements of Realism and Impressionism into intriguing scenes of daily Paris life. Originally an engineer, Caillebotte transitioned to painting after attending art school, where he was highly influenced by Impressionists Edgar Degas, Claude Monet and Pierre Renoir. Caillebotte’s style, with its tightly rendered forms, subdued colors, and daring, photographic style, was more realistic than the work of his fellow artists. Although his first painting was barred from exhibition, 40 of his 500 works are now displayed in Paris’ distinguished Musee d’Orsay.
