Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894) was not only an outstanding talent among the Impressionist painters, he was also among the most important collectors and patrons of his colleagues’ works. Guest speaker Mary G. Morton, Head of French Paintings at the National Gallery of Art, will explore this fascinating artistic personality in anticipation of the major exhibition, Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter’s Eye, scheduled for 2015 at the National Gallery of Art and the Kimbell Art Museum. A reception in the Riley Seminar Room will follow.

Please arrive at the Museum at least 20 minutes before the lecture begins. Enter the public door of your choice and collect lecture tickets in your name from Betsy Griffin at a table outside of Remis Auditorium.
