Our Rainy Day in Paris cross stitch was inspired by the 1877 oil painting ‘Paris Street, Rainy Day’ by French Artist Gustave Caillebotte. It is currently on display at the Art Institute of Chicago, USA.
Paris Street, Rainy Day was the talking point of the 1877 Impressionist exhibitions and is considered the artist’s masterpiece. It is almost seven by ten feet and the fashionable couple strolling in the foreground is actually life-size.
Rainy Day in Paris cross stitch is a big cross stitch project (measuring 63.5 cm x 49.2cm on 14 count Aida cloth). But if you are up for the challenge, we think you’ll love recreating the cobbled streets, the haute Parisian fashion, and the rain soaked umbrellas in DMC pastels.
