Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)
Gustave Caillebotte's painting style belongs to the school of realism, although he helped organize the first Impressionist painting exhibition and was himself an enthusiastic collector of Impressionist works. He painted portraits and interior scenes, urban life, still lifes, and landscapes and seascapes. Forty of his works now hang in the Musee d'Orsay.

Les raboteurs de parquet (The Floor-Scrapers)
1875 (150 Kb); Oil on canvas, 102 x 146.5 cm (40 x 57 3/4"); Musee d'Orsay, Paris

"The Floor-scrapers" or "Floor-strippers". Probably painted in the family home in the Batignolles area. It is typical of Caillebotte's taste for unusual perspectives and scenes from modern life, including so humble an occupation as floor scraping.
