(60.6 x 74 ... .3 cm); Classification: Paintings; Credit Line: Gift of Sara Lee Corporation, 2000 / When Monet painted this picture of his elder son, Jean, in the summer of 1872, the artist and his family had recently returned to France from their self-imposed exile during the Franco-Prussian War. Through the efforts of the dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, the artist's finances had begun to improve, enabling the once-impoverished Monets to rent a house in Argenteuil, an agreeable suburb northwest of Paris. For this portrait, Monet posed the five-year-old in the garden of their new home. Monet never exhibited the painting but kept it throughout his life.; Inscription: Signed and dated (lower right): Claude Monet. / 1872; Provenance: the artist, Argenteuil (1872-d. 1926); his daughter-in-law, Blanche Hoschedé-Monet (Mme Jean Monet), Giverny (1926-at least 1935); [Georges Bernheim, Paris, until 1938; sold on April 29 to Wildenstein]; [Wildenstein, London and New York, 1938-43; stock no. 10326; sold to Rogers]; Mrs. Huttleston Rogers, New York (1943-at least 1948); Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Cummings, Chicago and New York (by 1952-at least 1982); [Colnaghi, New York, 1983]; private collection/foundation [?George Farkas/Koch Foundation], United States (by 1986-94); [William Beadleston, New York, 1994; sold to Sara Lee]; Sara Lee Corporation, Chicago (1994-2000)
