Gustave Caillebotte delved into the world of painting under the tutelage of Léon Joseph Florentine Bonnat and later pursued his artistic studies at the École des Beaux-Arts. Following an inheritance from his parents, Caillebotte not only financed his own artistic career but also provided vital support to fellow artists such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, and others through the acquisition of their works. Gustave Caillebotte carved a significant niche in the realm of French painting, garnering recognition for his influential role in the Impressionist movement while also adhering to a Realist aesthetic.

Distinguished by his use of more naturalistic hues, neutral tones, and a keen focus on perspectival space, his artistic style set him apart from his Impressionist counterparts. Drawing inspiration from Japanese prints, Caillebotte often adopted the techniques of ukiyo-e artists, employing a tilted perspective to depict the expansive boulevards and riverside scenes of Paris. Caillebotte’s artistic creations find a place in the esteemed collections of institutions like the Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, among others.
