There’s something about this painting

Houses of Parliament by Claude Monet

There’s something about this painting that makes it my favorite one out of all of the paintings on display at the Art Institute of Chicago. Entitled “Houses of Parliament,” it is by the great Impressionist painter, Claude Monet. While less famous than his series of water lilies or haystacks, this work never fails to capture my attention.

There is a dreamy, evocative, mysterious, and even somewhat fantastic quality to it that draws me in every time I see it. And London is my favorite city in the world, so there’s that.
