Dr. George T. M. Shackelford, Deputy Director of the Kimbell Art Museum and co-curator of the exhibition Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye, discusses the critical issues raised by Caillebotte's innovative paintings - those issues that make understanding him and looking closely at his work essential to the appreciation of Impressionism. Drawing from this recent retrospective of the artist's work and the DMA's own Yellow Roses in a Vase, Shackelford addresses Caillebotte's impact on the Impressionist movement and his legacy in the history of art. This lecture is sponsored by the Richard R. Brettell Lecture Series on 19th- and 20th-century European art.
