Without the fog, London would not be a beautiful city. It is fog that gives it its magnificent amplitude…its regular and massive blocks become grandiose in that mysterious mantle. —Claude Monet
Claude Monet’s stunning cityscapes are lush with hues of purple, orange, blue, yellow, and green. He was fascinated by the colors of London’s thick fog and painted what he saw with great passion.
While we admire Monet and these paintings, the depictions of industry and what we now know as pollution are more relevant than ever.
