Monet: The River of Dreams

Why did Monet visit London in the late 19th Century and how did he find it?

Claude Monet visited London numerous times in the late 19th Century, painting some of his most important works in the city. Why was he repeatedly attracted back to the foggy and overpopulated urban capital when his impressionist work was otherwise so concerned with light and nature? What was the city like when he visited it in the 1870s and 80s?  How was he received by the London art establishment at that time?
