Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye - He one of my favorite painters and this should be a great show with 50 paintings. It hangs November 8 to February 14, 2016 in the Renzo Piano Pavilion.
The Kimbell says: During the height of Impressionism in the 1870s and 1880s, Gustave Caillebotte (1848–1894) produced some of the movement's most daring and bold paintings. Experimenting with radical points of view and audacious perspective, he created images of Paris streets, of domestic life and of country pursuits that are unforgettable. Some 50 paintings from 1875 to 1882—the time in which Caillebotte was most committed to the Impressionist movement—will reveal his genius.
