Durant cette période de confinement, le musée d'Orsay vous présente chaque jour l'un des plus beaux paysages de ses collections. Aujourd'hui, “Voiliers à Argenteuil” (verse 1888) de Gustave Caillebotte. . Caillebotte is a yachtsman passionate. Il remporte des régates, se fait remarquer par ses bateaux luxueux et posède une maison sur la rive de la Seine facing à Argenteuil. Il se met donc naturellement à peindre des "canotiers" et des voiliers. His vision is influenced by celle de Monet qui fit des voiliers sur la Seine un de ses motifs de prédilection. Manet, Renoir et even Sisley ont également largemente abordé ce thème. C'est ainsi que Caillebotte appears presque démodé, en tout cas retardataire, lorsqu'il expose en 1888 des vues de bateaux sur la Seine. Il n'en demeure pas moins que certaines de ses compositions, comme celle-ci, sont parfaitement equilibrantes, lumineuses, réussies. De plus, avec ses touches épaisses et serrées il s'éloigne des effets plus fluides de Monet et Renoir. . During the lockdown, the Musée d'Orsay presents to you every day one of the most beautiful landscapes in its collections. Today, “Sailing Boats at Argenteuil” (circa 1888) by Gustave Caillebotte. . Caillebotte was passionate about sailing. He won regattas, attracted attention for his luxurious boats and bought a house across the Seine. He therefore naturally began to paint "boaters" and sailing boats. He was influenced by Monet who made the sailing boats on the Seine one of his preferred motifs. Manet, Renoir or Sisley had also tackled this theme. So Caillebotte seemed almost old-fashioned when he exhibited views of boats on the Seine in 1888. But the fact remains that some of these paintings, such as this one, are successful in the balance of composition and the quality of the light he conjures up . And his pictorial surface is heavily worked with broad, closely juxtaposed brushstrokes, very different from the more fluid effects of Monet and Renoir.
