Impressionist icon Claude Monet (1840-1926) sometimes included his large family of eight children in the landscapes done around his home in Giverny.  For instance above we can see Michel Monet  and his stepbrother Jean-Pierre Hoschede, who were about the same age.  While below is his depiction of two of his stepdaughters Blanche, an artist herself, and Suzanne, a favorite model.
