An 1882 oil on canvas portrait, The Chef (aka Monsieur Paul), by Claude Monet (1840-1926), the French impressionist painter. Known as "Père Paul", the chef worked in a restaurant in Pourville in Normandy and owned the hotel where Monet stayed. The chef's specialities were galettes, which he baked for Monet, who was one of the few out-of-season guests (the artist even painted them). (Österreichische Galerie Belvedere, Vienna)
