This oil sketch on canvas of a couple walking in the rain is quite typical of early impressionist art with strong quick strokes, and a subject that was not a romantic vista, but a common scene. The graphic sketch quality is appealing and well executed. It was later laid down on a board, and is unsigned, but extremely typical of his palette and style of Hansen's early work.
