About Nasturtiums

Nasturtiums is a painting created in 1892 by renowned Impressionist artist Gustave Caillebotte. It showcases the artist’s masterful use of color and perspective to create a beautiful and mesmerizing artwork. The painting features natural hues of blue, lavender, green, and red silk that merge together to form a striking image. Caillebotte was part of the group of artists known as Impressionists who were fascinated with how modernization changed Paris and its people.

What makes Nasturtiums unique is its use of perspective, inspired by photography. Caillebotte used sharp angles, expanded perspectives, and tilted vantage points to add depth and dimensionality to the artwork. These elements all come together to provide an interesting interpretation that goes beyond just flowers.

Today, Nasturtiums is part of Caillebotte’s collection that he bequeathed to the French state. It now resides in Musée d’Orsay where it can be admired for its intricate details and artistic beauty. Viewing Nasturtiums can expose one’s aesthetic sensibility while conveying insightful information about Impressionist art movement dynamics under the hands-on approach of Gustave Caillebotte himself – making this piece an indispensable addition to any serious academic study on art history or cultural landscape over different epochs around Europe during his time period.
