Until the end of the French- Algerian war, Algeria was an overseas colony of France .
Why was Monet sent home from Algeria?
Claude Monet left Algeria just a year later in 1862 when he contracted typhoid fever. Normally a young soldier would have expected to remain in the army for seven years, so who would pay the army back in Monet's case? Fortunately the artist's aunt, Madame Lecadre, saved his hide and bought her nephew out of the army.
