The Courtauld Institute of Art have announced that they'll be putting on an exhibition entitled Monet and London. Views of the Thames in September 2024.

According to the institute's website:

Begun over three stays in the capital between 1899 and 1901, the series—depicting Charing Cross Bridge, Waterloo Bridge and the Houses of Parliament—was unveiled at a landmark exhibition in Paris in 1904. Monet fervently wanted to show them in London itself the following year, 1905, but plans fell through. To this day, they have never been the subject of an exhibition in the UK.

The Griffin Catalyst Exhibition: Monet and London. Views of the Thames will realise Monet’s unfulfilled ambition of showing this extraordinary group of paintings in London, on the banks of the Thames and a mere 300 metres from the Savoy Hotel where most were painted. By presenting the paintings Monet himself selected for his public in Paris and London, it will provide visitors with the unique experience of seeing the show Monet curated and the works he felt best represented his ambitious artistic enterprise – brought together for the first time 120 years after their inaugural exhibition.

The show will run from 27th September 2024 until 19th January 2025.
