"Paris Street; Rainy Day" Gustave Caillebotte

This painting is called "Paris Street; Rainy Day", By Gustave Caillebotte. This painting is from the impressionism period, and has many details entailed. The rain on the cobble stone is very realistic, as well as the rain on the umbrellas. His ability to give a depth of field in this painting is done very well, and the entire canvas is filled. This makes your eyes wander throughout the entire painting, but still leaves you focused on the couple in the front. The colors are dull and not very vibrant, which gives it an eerie feel.
