Monet pastel returns to the Savoy Hotel

13 December 2011

Monet's Waterloo Bridge, created during one of his stays at The Savoy, is returning to the London hotel over 100 years after it was drawn.

The French impressionist sketched the pastel artwork in January 1901 from his view from room 618, now known as the Monet suite.

Invited guests will be able to view Waterloo Bridge from the same room.

Hotel guests will then be able to view the sketch in The Savoy Museum located next to its renowned American Bar.

It will be on display between 13 and 16 December.

The work is on loan from an art dealer and is currently available to buy.

Waterloo Bridge is one of 26 pastels of the River Thames known to have survived from Monet's stays at The Savoy, and the only example not held in a museum.
