Claude Monet’s paintings could be hiding a dirty secret. Researchers who analysed a selection of the French artist’s work think that his paintings could be the first recordings of smog in Victorian London. Monet visited London between 1899 and 1901 to paint his Houses of Parliament series. But nobody knew whether his depictions of the weather conditions were based on observations on the spot, or whether he used some artistic licence when finishing the paintings back in his studio in Giverny, France.
