This first catalogue of the work of Gustave CAILLEBOTTE (1848-1894) lists 477 paintings chronologically. A substantial first section situates the painter in his period, examines his position compared with the impressionists, and recalls his love of sailing, a hobby that his fortune allowed him to indulge in. The analysis of his art underlines the diversity of the artist's sources of inspiration. Archival documents, a critical bibliography, indexes and tables are included in annex.

This new catalogue raisonné lists 565 entries, or the entirety of paintings and pastels by the artist known at present. Gustave CAILLEBOTTE (1848-1894) painted subjects as diverse as scenes of interiors and of the working man, landscapes, portraits, still lifes and views of Paris. A personality both eclectic and secret, a friend and patron to the impressionists, this great collector remains an artist who defies classification.
