Gustave Caillebotte

Gustave Caillebotte was an influential French painter best known for his involvement in the Impressionist movement, though he also notably subscribed to a Realist aesthetic. The more naturalistic hues, neutral tones, and attention to perspectival space in his works set him apart from other Impressionist painters. As an artist familiar with Japanese prints, Caillebotte often mimicked the style of ukiyo-e artists by utilizing a tilted perspective to depict the stretching boulevards and river scenes of Paris, such as in Paris Street, Rainy Day (1877).
