Charing Cross Bridge by Claude Monet

Claude Monet's Charing Cross Bridge was painting in 1900 during his London campaign. Monet captured the sights of London from the fifth-floor balcony of the Savoy Hotel. He returned in February with the compositions he has started, and by March he reported that he had at least 65 canvases completed.
The view of the Charing Cross Bridge, with its misty atmosphere and the merest suggestion of forms for the boats on the water, recalls the approach Monet took in his pioneering work, Impression Sunrise.
Monet was captivated by the London fog and depicts this is his painting here.
