Poetry and Pictures - Weather

Isaac Levitan painted the landscapes of the Russian countryside during the late nineteenth century. This painting of his is called After the Rain. There are two types of clouds that make rain - cumulonimbus and nimbostratus. Do the clouds that Levitan painted look like one of these types? The broken pieces of low clouds that Levitan has painted are called "scud". They happen before or after a rainfall.
