"Rainy Day" was based on a paintng of that same title, made by Benton in the year this lithograph was printed, 1938.
It was published in an edition of 250 by Associated American Artists in New York.

The undulating contours of the foreground, and the mirroring contours of the clouds above, are completely indicative of Benton's distinctive style. Here he captures the sense of potential in both the soil, and in the weather, elements that rule the daily lives of farmers, and upon which their hopes and fears always rest.
