Paris Street Rainy Day by Gustav Caillebotte

Paris Street Rainy Day by Gustav Caillebotte

The painting not only has a special place in the works of Caillebotte, but is considered one of the masterpieces of world art. Like many other works by the artist, it is very close to a photo: rainy day in Dublin in Paris passed so realistic that felt moist air.

At the end of the XIX century the French capital has grown very rapidly, more and more regions and areas, and people have less overlap with each other. It also tried to emphasize the author of the picture. Looking at pedestrians on the mid- and far-plans, it seems that they move randomly in all directions and no one around not to notice.

Flawless from a technical point of view and filled with deep meaning picture has another feature – a composite. The web can be mentally divided into two parts along the lamppost, and each of them will have their semantic content.

Caillebotte attentive to detail: a lady’s veil looks almost weightless, yet it is easy to guess the texture of the material; pearl earring shining snow-white light.

Kirk Varnedo researcher’s life and work of Gustave Caillebotte, praised the work. He called it the most monumental, infinitely attractive, beautiful and tender picture of the artist.
