French Impressionist painter Blanche Hoschede Monet was the daughter of Claude Monet's long-term companion, Alice Hoschede, and she later married his son Jean. She had been a close observer of Claude Monet from the time she was eleven years old, and had spent many hours in his studios at Giverny and Pourville. By 1882 she was his assistant and pupil.
She would be forced to work always "en plein air" as she did not have a studio of her own, and would be able to paint with many varied artists who came to visit Monet, including John Leslie Breck and Theodore Earl Butler.
She married Jean Monet in 1897 and the two lived in Rouen and Beaumont-le-Roger, where Blanche did many landscape paintings. When Jean died in 1914, Blanche returned to the home of her father-in-law, at Giverny, and accompanied him on his painting excursions from 1921 and onward. After his death in 1926, Blanche painted strictly at Giverny for the next two decades. Her close observation of Claude Monet allowed her to work in the purest form of Impressionism, and her works were occasionally confused with those of her father-in-law. She staged several solo exhibitions between 1927 and 1947, and had exhibited in the Salons from 1905 until 1935.
Her paintings are in many museum collections, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Musee des Beaux Arts in Rouen, France.
