Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894 ) was a French painter, member and patron of the group of artists known as Impressionists, though he painted in a much more realistic manner than many other artists in the group. In common with his precursors, Jean-Francois Millet and Gustave Courbet, as well his contemporary Degas, Caillebotte aimed to paint reality as it existed and as he saw it, hoping to reduce painting's inherent theatricality. Caillebotte painted many domestic and familial scenes, interiors, and portraits, but is perhaps best known for his paintings of urban Paris.   more from wikipedia »
