Claude Monet was known to have an amazing sense of humor. However in childhood his humor often got him into trouble. Then again I doubt anyone can draw an unflattering, jumbo size, caricature of your teacher on the blackboard and get away with it unfazed….. Hmm. Monet was able to put some of his caricatures on display in a shop and actually made a profit from people commissioning him to draw caricatures of them. Ladies and Gentleman… the beginning of Claude Monet.
