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

    By Ross King

     

    Monet began his iconic large-scale images of his water pond in Giverny in 1914, at a time of personal turmoil and sadness. Then in his mid-seventies, he was one of the world’s most famous and successful painters. However, he had virtually given up painting following the deaths of both his wife and his eldest son. Nonetheless, it was during this period of sorrow, ill health and creative uncertainty that—as the guns roared on the Western Front—he began the most demanding and beautiful paintings he had ever attempted. This illustrated lecture will examine the personal and aesthetic motivations behind Monet’s immense canvases and their legacy in twentieth-century art.

    Ross King is the award-winning author of numerous works on French and Italian art, history and architecture. Among his books are Brunelleschi’s DomeMichelangelo and the Pope’s CeilingThe Judgment of Paris, and Leonardo and The Last Supper. His most recent book is Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies.
