A detailed account of London Fog and its various artistic representations by Dr Christine Corton http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/london-fog-and-the-impressionists
The lecture will explore different artistic representations of London Fog by artists such as W L Wyllie, Monet, Whistler and the Japanese artist Yoshio Markino. Viewed largely as a nuisance by London-born artists, it took foreign artists to make London Fog more acceptable.
The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/london-fog-and-the-impressionists
