Monet and his Muse, Camille
Camille Doncieux (15 January 1847 - 5 September 1879) was model, lover and wife of French painter Claude Monet (1840-1926), whose early paintings of her gave him his first taste of commercial and critical success. But when Camille died young, at 32 years, after a long illness following the birth of their second child, the woman who replaced her in Monet's life was determined to obliterate her memory.
