Author: Lemoine, Serge (ed)
Price: Not Available
Description: Paris: Flammarion, 2011. 28cm., pbk., 239pp. prof. illus., most in color. Exhibition held at musée Jacquemart-André, Paris. Summary: Gustave Caillebotte’s reputation for his talent as a painter and his role as patron of his Impressionist friends is well established. We also know that he had great affection for his brother Martial. But Martial himself, composer, pianist and photographer, remained relatively unknown. However, a recent study of Martial’s photographic collection has revealed a great awareness of the subjects represented in the paintings of his brother Gustave: the views of Paris, the sailing boats, the gardens and the river banks. This discovery has enabled the Jacquemart-André Museum to do what no other museum has done before: compare Martial’s photographs directly with Gustave’s works. Thanks to some exceptional loans from private and public collections, the exhibition reveals the underlying similarities between the Caillebotte brothers, by hanging 35 paintings alongside almost 150 modern prints for the first time. These prints were taken from Martial’s originals. Some of the paintings, which belong to private collections, have never been shown in public before.
