Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye

June 29, 2015

Caillebotte was among the most critically noted impressionist artists during the height of their activity in the late 1870s and early 1880s. Some 45 paintings from 1875 to 1882—the period in which Caillebotte was fully engaged with the impressionist movement—will provide a focused understanding of the provocative character and complexity of his artistic contributions, from spectacular images of the new public spaces designed by Baron Haussmann to visual meditations on leisure-time activities in and around Paris. The exhibit runs from June 28 - October 4, 2015 at the National Gallery of Art - 6th Street and Constitution Avenue NW Washington, DC.

Whistler in Paris, London, and Venice

This exhibition examines one of the most celebrated artists of the 19th century through the lens of three of his earliest and most innovative sets of etchings, the so-called French, Thames, and Venice Sets. Each set is representative of an important period in Whistler's life: as a student in Paris, absorbing the lessons of his Realist contemporaries and the Old Masters; as an emerging artist in London, forging a name for himself as an etcher; and as a well-known artist and teacher in Venice.
The exhibition ends July 19, 2015 and is located at Yale University Art Gallery - 1111 Chapel Street, New Haven, CT.
