Jean Monet (on his Hobby Horse, 1872)


French chemist and artist's model, the eldest son of French Impressionist painter Claude Monet and Camille Doncieux and the brother of Michel Monet. He was the subject of several paintings by his father executed from 1867 to 1880, and he married his step-sister, Blanche Hoschedé.

The first portrait that Monet made of his son was of the four-month-old Jean Monet in His Cradle. Alongside Jean was a woman Julie Vellay, a companion of Camille Pissarro, rather than his mother.

His parents were married on 28 June 1870.

When Jean was a young child his mother and father had fled France during the Franco-Prussian War. They returned by the summer of 1872 when Claude painted his five-year-old son on a hobby horse in the garden of the home the family rented in Argenteuil near Paris. Claude Monet kept the painting, and never exhibited it, throughout his life.

Jean Monet trained to be a chemist in Switzerland. He married Blanche Hoschedé in 1897. They lived in Rouen, where Jean worked for his uncle Leon Monet as a chemist, and Beaumont-le-Roger until 1913. The couple visited Giverny on weekends.

Jean suffered an illness for a period of time and died on 10 February 1914, aged 46.
