history meme(french edition) → free choice: relationships (3/?) Georges Clemenceau & Claude Monet.
In February 1900, Clemenceau managed to reach London along with Geffroy, where Monet had been working for the past two months, painting the Tower of London. This privilege was granted by Violet Maxse, lady Edward Cecil, only thanks to Clemenceau’s support. Things turned out pretty well, and Monet, amused, wrote “Clemenceau and Geffroy just left. It was lovely to see them at last, and even though they were always around, they almost not bothered me.” – J.-B. Duroselle, Clemenceau.
