The National Gallery in London, founded in 1824, houses a rich collection consisting of more than 2,300 paintings from various periods and schools from the mid-12th century to the early 20th century. Among the many are some paintings by our very own artist Claude Monet. Here can be admired seventeen masterpieces by the French artist. 

Remarkably, among the previously seen “sights” of London, the painting “The Thames below Westminster” is preserved within the museum’s walls. 

Therefore, we can here marvel at the artist’s painting with our own eyes and appreciate his artistic vein up close.
