Реферат: Caillebotte, Gustave

GustaveCaillebotte, b. Aug. 19, 1848, d. Feb. 21, 1894, was a French painter and agenerous patron of the impressionists, whose own works, until recently, wereneglected.

He was anengineer by profession, but also attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. Hemet Edgar Degas, Claude Monet, and Pierre Auguste Renoir in 1874 and helpedorganize the first impressionist exhibition in Paris that same year. Heparticipated in later shows and painted some 500 works in a more realisticstyle than that of his friends. Caillebotte's most intriguing paintings arethose of the broad, new Parisian boulevards. The boulevards were painted fromhigh vantage points and were populated with elegantly clad figures strollingwith the expressionless intensity of somnambulists, as in Boulevard Vud'en Haut (1880; private collection, Paris). Caillebotte's superbcollection of impressionist paintings was left to the French government on hisdeath. With considerable reluctance the government accepted part of thecollection.
