French artist Gustave Caillebotte (1848 -1894) painted fascinating scenes of everyday Parisian life in a style melding Realism and Impressionism. Caillebotte left an engineering career after being greatly inspired by the renowned Impressionists he met at art school. His style was more realistic than the work of his fellow artists, incorporating muted colors, tight forms and photographic angles. Although he was banned from exhibiting his first painting, 40 of Caillebotte’s 500 artworks are now featured in Paris’ Musee d’Orsay.
