     The period during which Monet created this riverscape painting was an extremely traumatic one. However, much like van Gogh, suffering seemed to provoke him to do his greatest work. Alfred Sisley died on 29 January 1899 and it was during the summer of 1900 that Monet suffered an accident that temporarily blinded him. He had to rest for an entire month.

     But during this period he began his series of water lilies, aka Le Bassin aux Nympheas, as well as Japanese bridges and the Thames River paintings of which this one is considered to be the best. He dedicated himself to the Thames River paintings for about five years and to water lilies and Japanese bridges for the rest of his life.
     London Parliament in Breaking Fog was most likely painted in 1900 in his room at the Savoy Hotel in London. However, a number of the paintings in this series were completed at Monet's Giverny studio from 1900-1905, some by memory — a concept he had rejected until then.
     During the Franco-Prussian War, Monet fled to London for two years to avoid conscription into the military. While in London he spent a lot of time with Pissarro which affected his painting style, changing his choice of colors and continually decreasing the size of his brushstrokes.

     Monet believed nature was a sanctuary from the sadder side of life — particularly commercial development — and he made sure every home he had after the war had a luxurious garden — or he made one. Above is a photo of Claude Monet in 1923-24 on the Rose Path leading to the house in his garden at Giverny.
