Monet on the Run – 35. A decisive encounter
Stating that Monet had a hard time selling his work in London, is perhaps an understatement. Daubigny felt for him and decided to make an appeal to his network. His introduction of Monet to the upcoming art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel was a decisive moment in Monet’s life and crucial for the success of the future impressionists.
