Claude Monet Painting in his Studio or Monet in his Boat is an 1874 oil on canvas painting by Édouard Manet. It shows his friend Claude Monet painting in his 'studio-boat' with his wife. This was an old boat Monet had bought around 1871 or 1872, from which he observed the light on the Seine – Daubigny also had a studio-boat called the Bottin.[1] With The Monet Family in their Garden and Argenteuil, it was one of a number of paintings produced during a summer Manet spent with Monet. The work is now in the Neue Pinakothek.
