    Louis Anquetin's 'Avenue de Clichy' 1887 is more than just a street scene... a rainy twilight in Paris. It was recognized as a seminal work in its day. In 1889, the painting was in Volpini at the Universal Exposition. That show that is the focus of the Cleveland museum's exhibition. This painting slows influences from friends Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and van Gogh (note the palette).Oddly, he soon abandoned this style and began painting allegories like Peter Paul Rubens.

    Louis Anquetin, Avenue de Clichy, 1887. 1882, he came to Paris and began studying art at Léon Bonnat's studio, where he met Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The two artists later moved to the studio of Fernand Cormon, where they befriended Émile Bernard and Vincent van Gogh. He eventually fell from the public's eye after abandoning the modern movements, opting instead to study the methods of the Old Masters, especially Rubens.
