Looking at Caillebotte - sold


 Oil on Canvas Panel 7"x5"

Impressionism is one of my favorite periods in art and an endless source of inspiration. I enjoy the way Impressionists depicted people of their era in their daily lives. Edgar Degas' pastel of Mary Cassatt at the Louvre, is a delightful early version of the popular theme of art lovers in museums. I felt this young art lover at the Art Institute of Chicago beautifully complemented Gustave Caillebotte's painting, Paris Street, Rainy Afternoon.
