Faye Wrubel vs. Paris Street: Rainy Day

"When conservator Faye Wrubel examined Caillebotte's masterpiece 'Paris Street; Rainy Day' in the Art Institute's conservation studio after it had traveled from Paris to New York and back to Chicago in the exhibition Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity, she discovered, among other things, that the varnish had yellowed over the decades, significantly altering the painting.

"Watch as Faye's deft touch, hard work, and expertise return the painting - and Paris - to the artist's original vision."
