From Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City:
While visiting Rouen in spring and fall 1896, Pissarro wrote of his interest in the "motif of the iron bridge on a rainy day, with much traffic, carriages, pedestrians, workers on the quays, boats, smoke, mist in the distance, the whole scene fraught with animation and life." The present canvas is one of several views of the Boieldieu Bridge, or Grand Pont, that Pissarro painted from a room in the Hôtel d'Angleterre. Its title, Matin, Temps Gris, Rouen (Morning, An Overcast Day, Rouen), is thought to be the artist’s own.
