New Release: Michael Flohr’s, “Parisian Rain”

Exclusive Collections Gallery is excited to unveil the latest Fine Art Limited Edition by artist Michael Flohr.


Paris is known as the city of love because of its architecture, history, and aura of romance. What better place for contemporary painter Michael Flohr to capture in his most recent “rain” series?

Flohr’s fond memories of Paris are personal in nature. The memory of visiting cafés in the Montmartre district where the great impressionists Cezanne, Monet, and Toulouse-Lautrec frequented inspire and excite his imagination. Flohr’s distinct style is both impressionistic and expressionistic in nature, making Paris the perfect place to paint yet another great masterpiece.

Using rain as a metaphor for cleansing, the sparkling lights of the city glow with a renewed brilliance. The Eiffel Tower stands proudly in the background, bringing contrast to the female figure holding a vibrant, red umbrella. Symbolic of the artist himself, this visual innuendo speaks of bold individuality and undaunted perseverance. The composition originates not only from seeking new places, but also from seeing places with new eyes. Some may surmise that Michael Flohr paints moments, not places. He is an artist that sees the beauty of the physical world, but ultimately yearns to paint the experience of being in a special place, at a special time. Parisian Rain is the embodiment of what is quintessentially Michael Flohr.
