Painter and Patron of Impressionism
The rare loan of Paris Street; Rainy Day (1877) – coming to Berlin from the Art Institute of Chicago – is the highlight of this exhibition, which looks at how Caillebotte’s distinctive take on modern urban life, as well as his financial clout, helped to drive Impressionism forward. Find out more from the Alte Nationalgalerie’s website.
