He did not only have land, he made a park out of it. This can of course be inherited – and the guy was working as a painter all his life before doing the things that made him famous. And many paintings that we have of him were taken from the trees he has thrown them in because he was so totally dissatisfied with his own work.

Well, if he could afford that he probably was loaded.

EDIT:

> The family worked and built up the gardens and Monet’s fortunes began to change for the better as his dealer Paul Durand-Ruel had increasing success in selling his paintings. By November 1890, Monet was prosperous enough to buy the house, the surrounding buildings and the land for his gardens.
