A member and patron of the group of artists known as the Impressionists, Gustave Caillebotte is best known for his paintings of 19th-century urban life in Paris. Rejecting academic conventions of glorifying Classical and European historical subject matter, Caillebotte favored Realist tendencies of portraying the everyday and working-class life. For example, Paris Street: Rainy Weather (1876-1877) shows a couple walking down a Parisian street on a dreary day. Unlike the brighter palettes of Impressionist painters like Degas, Renoir, and Monet, Caillebotte’s work is distinguished by his somber tones and use of plunging perspectives.
