Monet loved London for its fog. During his 1901 visit to the city, he attempted to capture the evanescent effects of its misty climate in a series of views of Waterloo Bridge under varying conditions. Each time the light and weather shifted, he began a new canvas or returned to the one that recorded that particular atmosphere. Monet did not complete the paintings in London. He perfected them in his studio in France over the next three years. Thus, this painting records not only the artist's immediate response to the scene, but also his memory of it.
