Distinguished Lecture: Ross King Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies

Despite failing eyesight, reports of retirement, and bouts of depression, Claude Monet set to work on his most iconic work, paintings of his beloved water lily garden in Giverny, France. A harmonious world of nature transports viewers and provides, as Monet intended, “an asylum of peaceful meditation.” New York Times bestselling author Ross King reveals the untold story of Monet and his masterpiece. King is the bestselling author of Brunelleschi’s Dome, Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling, The Judgment of Paris, and Leonardo and the Last upper.
