Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Claude Monet was born in Paris on November 14, 1840.  When he was five years old, the family moved to the port town of Le Havre. For much of his childhood he was considered by both his teachers and parents to be undisciplined and therefore, unlikely to make a success of his life.  When he was a fifteen, scornful of the quiet earnest pictures Boudin was painting, they met and Boudin, overcoming the younger man's resistance, urged him to study landscape.  Together they worked (showing 500 of 7520 characters).
