L'Enfant a la tasse or L'Enfant a la tasse, portrait de Jean Monet is an oil painting by Impressionist Claude Monet created in 1868. The painting – which features Monet's son Jean sitting next to a white and blue striped cup – is Monet's third painting to feature his son.
The painting was listed on Amazon.com for sale at USD$1,450,0000 as part of its "fine art" initiative in August 2013. Economist Tyler Cowen criticized the initiative saying it "looks like dealers trying to unload unwanted, hard to sell inventory."
