All in all, it would seem that Monet had a higher standard of living than the average Parisian doctor, and beginning in the 1890s he became downright wealthy.
If he had been sometimes short of cash, it was because he liked to live in big houses, eat good food and drink good wine.
Michel Monet, Claude Monet’s younger son, eventually inherited it and first showed the early drawings to academics in the mid-1960s.
The sketchbook is an important record of Monet’s artistic development.
A document detailing this activity emerged recently with the discovery of a book-length journal that had belonged to Théophile Beguin Billecocq, a friend of the Monet family who was himself an amateur draftsman.This sketchbook consisted of 55 pages, each approximately 20 by 30 centimeters. His mother is known to have carried a pocket-sized book for drawing, and at this stage it is likely that the young artists did the same.Unfortunately none of these smaller sketchbooks from his teenage years have survived."His sketches, whether in crayon or pencil, were always excellent, even if they were rapidly executed," Billecocq wrote in his journal."He knew how to capture the essential characteristics of a scene." On 1 April, 1851 Monet entered the Le Havre "college communal" which provided him with a "classical" foundation: Latin and Greek.
