The Fondation is devoting its annual summer exhibition to the painter Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894).

This homage to Gustave Caillebotte, in the form of a retrospective, brings together some 90 canvases painted between 1870 and 1894, thanks to loans from European museums: the Musée d’Orsay and the Musée Marmottan Monet in Paris, the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rennes, the Musée des Beaux-Arts in Rouen, the Petit Palais in Geneva, the Fondation de l’Hermitage in Lausanne, the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, and the Museum Barberini in Potsdam, as well as private collections.

Gustave Caillebotte’s art is a testimony to the metamorphosis of the French capital between 1870 and 1894.
