LONDON, THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT: SUN BREAKING THROUGH THE

FOG The French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926) wrote that he dreamed of painting the Sun "setting in an enormous ball of fire behind the Parliament", but the Sun's movement and changing appearance in the dreary London weather made this difficult. Instead, Monet used diffuse orange and reddish hues to capture the effect of sunset in a dense, foggy atmosphere, flattening the massive, neo-Gothic building to a dark silhouette of towers and pinnacles.
