Recorded: Wednesday October 26, 2016

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.
