This book accompanied the exhibition of 87 paintings & 28 drawings at 3 locations: Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, Paris, Sept. 6, 1994 - Jan. 9, 1995; The Art Institute of Chicago, Feb. 18 - May 28, 1995; and Los Angeles County Museum of Art, June 22 - Sept. 10, 1995.

After 2 essays introducing Gustave Caillebotte (1848-1894)--"Odd Man In" by Kirk Varnedoe, & "Introduction" by Anne Distel--the Catalogue begins on p. 27. Each of the 9 chapters begins with an essay followed by color illus. & informative entries:
1. "The Birth of an Impressionist" by Anne Distel;
2. "Yerres" by Anne Distel;
3. "The Street" by Julia Sagraves;
4. "Paris Seen from a Window" by Rodolphe Rapetti;
5. "Interiors & Portraits" by Gloria Groom;
6. "Still Lifes" by Douglas Druick;
7. "Normandy" by Rodolphe Rapetti;
8. "Petit Gennevilliers & Argenteuil" by Anne Distel & Rodolphe Rapetti; and
9. "Floral Still Lifes" by Gloria Groom.

P. S. The size of the type seemed a bit smaller than other art exhibition catalogues; so, I decided to check it. I printed out a similar typeface, in several different sizes. It looks to me as though the print here is 8-point type. By comparison, my newspaper & another art book (Sargent: Portraits of Artists & Friends, 2015) are approx. 10-point type.

This is a great book, with an incredibly complete (far as I know) collection of his work. There's more text than I may ever choose to read ;) but I definitely judge an art book by the quality of its text as well as the pictures, and this one is good. Don't know if you can find a copy; I'd been looking for a book on him for a while and was delighted to find this one.
