The college also housed a school of commerce and municipal drawing school.Luckily, the school was on Rue de la Maillereaye, near Claude's home, so he could sleep at home.Michel Monet, Claude Monet’s younger son, eventually inherited it and first showed the early drawings to academics in the mid-1960s.The sketchbook is an important record of Monet’s artistic development.Later on he was far more affluent, partly because of the high prices his work commanded, partly because - not what you might expect of a misty, nature-loving Impressionist, this - he played the stock exchange.If Monet talked a lot about money, it was, in the words of the biographer Spate, because he was "obsessed by it, chronically mean but a huge spender, and even when he was very rich, irrationally fearful of losing everything".That year he left school and was taken in by his widowed childless aunt, Marie-Jeanne Lecadre.With his aunt's support he spent a year in Paris in 1859-1860, because she, unlike Monet's father, sympathized with his artistic interests and allowed him to continue his drawing lessons.
"He knew how to capture the essential characteristics of a scene." On 1 April, 1851 Monet entered the Le Havre "college communal" which provided him with a "classical" foundation: Latin and Greek.However, income aside, it would be misleading to forget how non-conformist Monet was for his times: he fathered his first child out of wedlock, avoided wartime military responsibilities, setup a household (after the death of his first wife) with a married woman and disavowed religion to say nothing of his revolutionary approach to painting which left the 20th century a lasting legacy." (1) Monet was born on November 14, 1840 on the fifth floor of 45 rue Laffitte, in the ninth of Paris.He was the second son of Claude-Adolphe and Louise-Justine Aubrée Monet, both, second-generation Parisians.He later described the Parisian atmosphere of his home as “entirely concerned with commerce, where everyone professed a contemptuous disdain for art.” In reality, Oscar’s mother Louise-Justine was an elegant woman and trained soprano who loved to paint and write poetry."Mme Monet was a consummate hostess who filled their ornately decorated home with music and cultured guests.
