It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

Could you please re-edit your question and give more specific details to your question? GTK is a toolkit for graphics library. Gnome is, more or less a desktop environment. – Kevin Bowen Mar 8 '13 at 6:19
This is a clear question and your comment is a clear answer. Just because the answer is obvious to you doesn't mean it deserves to be closed. – Flimm Mar 8 '13 at 13:05

As this GTK+3 manual says:

GTK+ is the primary library used to construct user interfaces in GNOME applications. It provides user interface controls and signal callbacks to control user interfaces.
