In which city did Claude Monet paint Impression, Sunrise?

Answer

Claude Monet painted this canvas in one sitting early in the morning during a stay in Le Havre, the city of his childhood, with his wife and son, choosing one of his favourite themes, a port symbolising the industrial revolution of the 19th century and taking inspiration from the seascapes, sunrises and sunsets painted before 1872 by Eugène Delacroix, Eugène Boudin, Johan Barthold Jongkind or William Turner.
