Working from the window of a milliner's shop overlooking its façade, Monet began his series of over 30 views of Rouen Cathedral in February 1892. He returned in February 1893 and completed it at Giverny in 1893–1894. This painting of the cathedral viewed by the light of the setting sun is one of 20 Cathédrales exhibited to immense critical success in Paris in 1895. As a record of the ways in which light transforms the appearance of a motif, the series nears the limits of 'scientific' Impressionism.
