The Caillebotte Brothers’ private world – Exhibition in Paris
If Gustave Caillebotte is renowned for his talent as a painter and his patronage to the Impressionists, his brother, Martial, composer, pianist and photographer remains to be discovered.
Until July 11, the Jacquemart-André Museum proposes a unique exhibition entitled The Caillebotte Brothers’ private world.
Unique, this exhibition features paintings of Gustave, and photographs of Martial. We discover the private and artistic world of a large Parisian family, and the deep affinities that bound the two brothers.
By moving among these works full of sensitivity, we also discover the new urban lifestyle which was taking hold at the dawn of 20th century. Paintings and photographs also reflect the Parisian way of life often illustrated by Impressionist artists.
This exhibition was organized with exceptional loans of private and public collections. More than 35 paintings, some of which had never been presented to the public, and nearly 150 modern prints taken from Martial’s originals, compose this beautiful exhibition.
