Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies

October 26, 2016, 7pm
Baillie Court, Art Gallery of Ontario

Celebrated author Ross King shares the extraordinarily dramatic history behind the creation of Claude Monet's legendary water lily paintings, and, in the process, presents a compelling and original portrait of one of our most beloved artists. In his new book, Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies, King uses letters, memoirs, and other sources not employed by other biographers to reveal a more complex, more human, more intimate Claude Monet than has ever been portrayed, and firmly places his water lily project among the greatest achievements in the history of art.
