Monet's time at V,theuil was a key period in his life but one that has not previously been addressed in much detail. V,theuil, on the banks of the Seine, is where Monet lived with his wife Camille and their two young children, sharing a small rented house with the Hosched, family - Ernest, Alice and their six children. This was a time of great hardship and personal distress for Monet, and while he was painting some of his best-known works, selling them at times for as little as fifty francs, his dying wife was being nursed by Alice Hosched,, who also cared for both families. By the time the two families left V,theuil, Monet's work was starting to sell well and his financial problems were at an end. David Joel has made many visits to V,theuil and the Normandy coast, researching and photographing the places Monet painted, from a boat on the river, the land and the coast. 130 Monet paintings are illustrated in colour as well as David Joel's own photographs of the area as it is today.

Synopsis:

The recent exhibitions of Monet's work have centred on his Series paintings and then Water Lilies. David Joel has worked on this period over many years at Vetheuil. Monet lived there for four years and it was there that his first wife Camille, immortalized in over 70 paintings, died of cancer leaving their two young boys. They had shared their small house with the recently bankrupted Hoschede family of which Alice was the mainspring. Years later, when Ernest Hoschede died, Monet was to marry Alice. Never before or after did Monet work so hard over a period of five years. With his dealer's assistance he finally triumphed and was able to rent his home at Giverny and buy it later on. Despite the numerous books on Monet, this period at Vetheuil has never before, in English, been examined in detail. It was Monet's most productive period, for of the 350 pictures made in the 5 years, over 130 are now in the world's great galleries. This work attempts to provide a new insight into the life of Claude Monet.
