Claude Monet

The Stroller 1887 (Suzanne Hoschede),
Later Mrs.Theodore Earl Butler

This view of Suzanne Hoschede in the meadows just south of Le Pressoir, Monet's home at Giverny, was probably painted in the summer of 1887.  She became Monet's preferred model in the period
after the death of his first wife, Camille, in 1879, and before 1890, when he gave up plein-air figure painting.  The model was the daughter of Alice Hoschede, whom Monet married in 1892.
