One of Gustave Caillebotte’s best known works, the 1877 oil painting, ‘Paris Street; Rainy Day’ depicts a road intersection. The arrangement of roads and buildings is such that it allows him to use a ‘two-point perspective‘.
A gaze at a landscape, a street, a crowded square can be meaningful if one uses different angles and perspectives. The same can be said about viewpoints. Just as a physical dimension can be looked at in varying manners, so can be done with situations and human relationships. A wealth of understanding lies therein.
Closer home, there is something comforting to me about a rainy day…and night. The steady pitter patter of rain is soothing, so is the cleaner, greener landscape. And afterwards, there is the promise of sun.
