Full description
Follow in the footsteps of the great French Impressionists like Claude Monet and Romantics like J. M. W. Turner. Explore places that inspired their work and learn about their lives and art with a professional guide. Walk along the Thames Path towards St Thomas' Hospital and take in the views that inspired many of Monet’s paintings. Hear about J. M. W. Turner’s paintings that depict a fire destroying the Houses of Parliament. Continue to Westminster and Charing Cross which inspired many of Monet's paintings while your guide explains the technique and genius of his work. Hear interesting facts and anecdotes about the painters' lives in London including why the French Impressionists left Paris and sought refuge during the Franco-Prussian War and the story of Monet's stay at the Savoy Hotel.
