19th Century Museum Teaching Frame: After Caillebotte
Oil on canvas, wood, brass
37 x 27 x 6
This piece is based on Gustave Caillebottes, The Bridge of Europe, 1875, depicting the area around Le Gare St. Lazare. The two removable frames mark the confluence of roadways to major European cities and the alignment of lines of perspective. Caillebotte tinkered with perspective to bring both to the single, tense point between the strolling gentleman and the prostitute.
