Scale and Proportion

Scale and Proportion:


Gustave Caillebotte, “Paris Street; Rainy Day,” 1877, oil painting – Art Institute of Chicago

In this painting, we can see scale and proportion in that the figures in the front, which we see are closer to us, and much larger than the ones in the back of street. Having this accurate difference in the size of the different figures helps us see that the scale and proportions are accurate in the drawing.
