Impressionist painter Claude Monet lived in Vétheuil from 1878 to 1881, during which time he produced some 150 paintings. Joan Mitchell moved to Vetheuil in 1959 where she productively made many abstract works.
Camille Doncieux (1847-1879) was the first wife of Claude Monet, who painted her portrait in 1886. Before marrying Monet she was his model, and appeared three times in the painting Women in the Garden (Femmes au jardin). She died in Vétheuil, where she and her husband lived since 1878, and her grave is in Vétheuil cemetery.
