Gustave Caillebotte

French 🇫🇷 1848 - 1894

Gustave Caillebotte was a French Impressionist painter. His work is differentiated from other Impressionists because it is more realistic in style. He made his artistic debut in 1876 at the second Impressionist exhibition. He was also an early artist that was interested in photography as an art form, not just an objective record-keeping tool.

Caillebotte was a licensed lawyer, but never practiced. He was called into the military shortly after becoming licensed, and as a result never practiced law.
