You Should Only Cry in the Rain

Paris Street, Rainy Day by Gustave Caillebotte (1877)

I have always loved this painting. It is very atmospheric. One can feel the chill of the day and hear the sound of the rainwater rushing down the cobblestone streets. At the same time, I get a sense of unhappiness, a longing for a different situation, but acceptance of the reality.

What do you see, feel, hear, taste, touch, think when you see this painting?
