Details     Description
   
Artist Caillebotte, Gustave

Critics such as Edmond Duranty saw the sense if contemporary realism, which was often to be found in Impressionist works, as one of their greatest virtues. This quality was strikingly present in Caillebotte’s remarkable picture of three men renovating the floor of his new apartment. The work did not appear in the second Impressionist Exhibition catalogue. However it was one of the sensations of the show. Caillebotte had been introduced to the group by Monet and Renoir. He was extremely wealthy and supported most of the subsequent Impressionist Exhibitions.
