Gustave Caillebotte: An Impressionist and Photography
FRANKFURT  •  Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt  •  Ongoing
The Schirn Kunsthalle Frankfurt is devoting an exhibition of paintings, pastels and drawings to Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894). Whereas in Germany the life and work of Caillebotte are only now beginning to spark interest and appreciation, in France, the United Kingdom and in the United States the artist is considered a star of Impressionism. His radical, very modern, photography-like depictions provide insight into the close relationship between photography and painting in the evolution of a new way of seeing. Thanks to the unusual perspectives resulting from the way, Caillebotte framed his windows on the world, may of his works anticipate a photographic view which would only gradually evolve in that medium.The exhibition thus also encompasses examples of late nineteenth and early twentieth-century photography as a way of calling attention to Caillebotte´s pioneering role.
