Gustave Caillebotte – The Floor Scrapers – 1875

Writing about web page http://www.ibiblio.org/wm/paint/auth/caillebotte/raboteurs/scrapers.jpg

i think this is a brilliant painting – you can feel the varnish coming off the wood
his work is very very interesting, well worth looking at
not exactly in line with what the French Academys were looking for

    The way the muscles and skin of the workers has a similar texture to the floor is superb. Their hands also, with their fingers pointing down into the grooves that they have stripped in the floor, makes them seem so machine like.

    Thanks for highlighting that painting.
