Claude Monet painted The Artist's House at Argenteuil in 1873. In his new home with his family, Monet first indulged in a passion that would last his lifetime. At the rented house in Argenteuil, he cultivated his first garden.

During his second summer there, he began to paint the family in this intimate setting, with Jean playing with his hoop on the terrace among the blue and white planters he brought from Holland and Camille dressed in blue, peeking out the door.On the next page, see more of Argenteuil in Monet's Bridge at Argenteuil.
