Caillebotte died at age forty-five and left a bequest of his paintings to the nation of France, thirty-eight of which are now in the collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris. But for more than a hundred years, the majority of Caillebotte’s works (over four hundred) have resided in the collection of his family, largely inaccessible to the public, a fact that has limited understanding of and appreciation for this remarkable artist and his work. 20 cards total, 5 of each design.
