Gustave Caillebotte

Gustave Caillebotte

(1848 - 1894)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Man at the Window (1875)
  • Paris: A Rainy Day (1877)
  • Man Drying Himself (1884)
Native to Paris, Gustave Caillebotte was known for his paintings of everyday urban life, and for his adamant support of the Impressionist movement. Caillebotte had a substantial interest in photography, and designed his compositions with a photographer's eye; the placement of the figures in the canvases seem arbitrary and spur of the moment. Again, as if from a camera, his work did not show the extreme brushwork of other Impressionist painters, however, the essence of his paintings is definitely about recording a moment in life. He utilized unusually deep perspective, pulling the viewer into the image and creating a truly unique and innovative style. His subjects were set in the city, recording, moment by moment, the metamorphosis of Paris from a medieval center into a modern metropolis. Caillebotte was personal friends with Claude Monet, Pierre Auguste Renior, and Alfred Sisley, all major contributors to the movement. Caillebotte prepared their exhibitions and purchased many of their paintings, acting as a curator and collector as well as an artist. The artist possessed considerable wealth, and was therefore able to champion the cause of the Impressionists by purchasing paintings from his struggling friends. Upon his death in 1893 Caillebotte donated his entire collection of sixty-five Impressionist paintings to France. Despite the over thirty years that Impressionist painters had dedicated to the style, this donation was scorned by many, including Jean-Léon Gérôme, an academic painter and sculptor who declared the work immoral.

my canvas frame had a 1" frame. I wish your clips were in multiple sizes.I had to bend them a little to make them work. Five Star if you had my size.

I've had one of these for about 15yrs. Still works like new.I have used it for everything I have ever painted. The sustained pressure is about 20- 25 psi (according to my gauge) The control knob is a bit small though, and many times I've had to use pliers if I tighten it to much and it gets stuck, so I added my own flow control. Quite noisy for it's size, and I like to work at night in my garage, so I have to be mindful of the time (for the neighbors). Because it vibrates; it is noisier on a hollow floor vs a concrete floor etc. It also lacks an on/off switch which I solved by plugging it into a power bar that I could use my toe to start and stop. I paid $80 for mine. Completely maintenance free. The cord is longer than what is pictured here. Price 5/5 ease of use 5/5 Value 5/5 Noise Level 2/5 Features 2/5 Quality 4/5 Used Acrylics, latex, enamels For Illustrations, helmets, models, fridges, small murals etc.

Have used this in our custom figure business since 2005.The molds are still great after being used numerous times throughout the years, as long as you store them properly, no extreme heat or cold. Easy to use..easy cleanup. One problem-its shelf life is only a few months and then it gets lumpy.
