About Charing Cross Bridge, London

The artwork “Charing Cross Bridge, London” by Camille Pissarro, completed in 1890, is an oil on canvas within the Impressionism movement and falls under the cityscape genre. It is housed at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, USA.

In this painting, Camille Pissarro depicts the bustling Charing Cross Bridge over the Thames River in London. The artist captures the essence of the industrial age with steamboats and barges traversing the murky waters, while faint outlines of the city’s architecture, including the monumental buildings along the banks, are visible in the background. The soft, muted palette embodies a typical London haze, diffusing the light and lending an ethereal quality to the cityscape. The water’s surface shimmers with reflections, cleverly rendered in loose, dappled brushstrokes characteristic of the Impressionist style, which sought to convey the fleeting moments of light and color.
