Walking in the Rain



Paris Street, Rainy Day, 1877 by Gustave Caillebotte, The Art Institute of Chicago.

An all time favorite of mine and a lot of visitors to the AIC. I think it is probably the familiarity of the scene even if it is almost 150 years before today, a rainy street is a rainy street.

This has always been one of my favorites, too. I've always loved a good rainy day in early fall.

"Always..." He was fairly unknown till not so very long ago though, of course, he never should have been lost or set aside. He was, in certain works, a better painter than the more famous Impressionists he sponsored.
