'Paris Street: Rainy Day' Not As Rainy As Thought

"When conservator Faye Wrubel began restoring Gustave Caillebotte's 'Paris Street; Rainy Day' at the Art Institute of Chicago last October, she thought it would be a routine sprucing-up," the Wall Street Journal reports.

"But the discoveries she made - which the museum will unveil to the public April 23 - are likely to significantly alter not only the perception of the famous 1877 painting but also the artist's standing in art history."


"So significant is the metamorphosis of the painting and what it means to Caillebotte that Ms. Groom has invited curators, conservators and art historians from across the country to Chicago on April 22 to see and discuss Ms. Wrubel's findings."
