Charing Cross Bridge

Continuing the London/UK theme of this week. I was surprised that I had not featured Andre Derain (1880-1954) yet in my blog. He was a prominent French artist, and co-founder of the fauvist movement with Matisse. This painting, depicting London's Charing Cross Bridge, dates back to 1906, around the start of that movement - and is one of the best in my opinion. More on Derain in the wikipedia article linked to below.
