This page is intended to provide information and web links about Camille Doncieux, the model, later mistress, later first wife, of Claude Monet. I have been fascinated by her life and death, ever since first seeing the haunting portrait of her that he painted on her death bed, "Camille sur son lit de mort." I do not find that she was particularly attractive, but the more that I have learned about her the more tragic her life and death become. I do not find any web pages focusing on her. So I am starting this meagre effort.
