In this gallery, we showcase 30 paintings by Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894), the French impressionist painter. The selection here is presented in chronological sequence to show the artist's career progression. Caillebotte was most interested in capturing the activities of everyday Parisians, in the streets, at labour, and at leisure. This selection includes his most famous works, views of the places he lived and his hobbies, and several lesser-known canvases. Many of the works contain Caillebotte's trademarks: a strong sense of composition, dramatic diagonals and geometrical forms, the play of light on hard surfaces, and blue-grey tones broken by splashes of colour.
