At the age of thirty-two, Madame Monet died on 5 September 1879 of tuberculosis; Monet painted her on her death bed.LATER LIFE After several difficult months following the death of Camille on 5 September 1879, a grief-stricken Monet (resolving never to be mired in poverty again) began in earnest to create some of his best paintings of the 19th century.It is possible that the Dutch painter Johan Barthold Jongkind, whom Monet knew, may have prompted his aunt on this matter.
Monet and Camille Doncieux had married just before the war (June 28, 1870) and, after their excursion to London and Zaandam, they had moved into a house in Argenteuil near the Seine River in December 1871. They had a second son, Michel, on March 17, 1878, (Jean was born in 1867).
Boudin taught Monet “en plein air” (outdoor) techniques for painting. He was 16 years old when he left school, and went to live with his widowed childless aunt, Marie-Jeanne Lecadre.
