Canvas Print Description

This masterwork of urban Impressionism, and forerunner of the concerns and obsessions of twentieth century Modernity, was refused by the prestigious Paris Salon when the artist Gustave Caillebotte entered it into the annual prize. It turned out to be a stroke of luck. Turning to the independent group the Impressionists, Caillebotte first revealed his stunning canvas at their 1876 exhibition. Considered an uninteresting subject by many haughty critics at the time, “The Floor Planers” was later recognized as a remarkable intermingling of painting and photography. With a canted viewpoint, startling immediacy, and shimmering lines, Caillebotte’s painting increased in reputation as the years passed. Although not formally attached to the Impressionist cohort, the artist greatly benefitted from their polite revolution, allowing him to usher in poignant glimpses of the unseen world of Parisian life. “The Floor Planers” depicts a scene different than contemporary artists and critics would have expected from a work set in one of the glittering new apartment blocks that coincided with the brutal urban regeneration of Paris. Rather than setting an emblematic or allegorical scene in a plush drawing room, the artist captured in tremendous detail, the bare-bodies of three manual workers scraping the newly laid wooden floor. They are surrounded by the elements of their separation and craft — a half-drunk bottle of wine, lime, tools, and hammers. The work is also a stunning study of light and shade, with the curled shavings of the planed wood catching each ray of light from the open window. Muscular, energetic, and startlingly visceral, Caillebotte’s study of working-class labor is a caustic critique of social division and a portrait of those who lost out to the remodeling of ancient Paris.
