The winter of 1892-93 was a particularly cold and snowy one in central France. In January Monet informed his dealer that despite the low temperatures, he was painting outdoors in order to capture his impressions of the partially frozen Seine River. This almost monochromatic canvas was painted near the town of Bennecourt, located halfway between Paris and Rouen.
