When Gustave Caillebotte submitted his first painting to the French salon (a portrait of some common laborers stripping a wooden floor), it was dismissed as “vulgar” and rejected. Now, he’s considered one of the most daring impressionists, perhaps even more so than his contemporaries Monet and Renoir. The winner of this Big Deal will receive two tickets to view Caillebotte’s most famous cityscapes and interiors in the Kimbell Art Museum‘s current exhibition, Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter’s Eye, running through Feb. 14, 2016.

While you’re here, don’t forget to sign up for this week’s other Big Deal – a pair of tickets to any Sammons Jazz or Sammons Cabaret concert in the upcoming spring season at the Sammons Center for the Arts.
