ART: Rain Storm, Union Square by Childe Hassam


“Are the days of winter sunshine just as sad for you, too? When it is misty, in the evenings, and I am out walking by myself, it seems to me that the rain is falling through my heart and causing it to crumble into ruins.” Gustave Flaubert

  1. Ah, two masters walking together in the rain. Me, ever the student, many steps behind.

    People under umbrellas in the rain are some of my most favorite painting subjects! My absolute fav is Caillebotte’s “Paris, a Rain Day.” But this one is growing on me.


    1. Yes, I love that one , too. I think I like Caillebotte’s better, but I’d never seen the Hassam before.
