From Saint Louis Art Museum:
Claude Monet painted a series of about thirty paintings of the Charing Cross railroad bridge spanning the River Thames, each highlighting different light and weather effects. In this scene, a train puffs across the bridge as sunlight falls through the mist and creates shimmering patterns on the river surface. Monet was a noted Anglophile and painted this view on one of three visits to London between 1899 and 1901. He noted, “I love London…what I love, above all, is the fog.”
