Monet used Camille Doncieux as a model for this painting that was accepted at the “Salon de peinture et de sculpture”. It was the last painting of Monet that was to be seen at the Salon.
Camille worked as a model when Monet met her in 1865. She became Monet’s favorite model over the years. They started living together in 1867 and married in 1870.
