Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet
and the Painting of the Water Lilies
By Ross King
Saturday, September 10
10:30 am Reception; 11:00 am Lecture
Free; Registration Required (includes lecture ticket)
Claude Monet is perhaps the world’s most beloved artist, and among all his creations, the paintings of the water lilies in his garden at Giverny are most famous. From bestselling author Ross King, Mad Enchantment tells the full story behind the creation of the Water Lilies, as the horrors of World War I came ever closer to Paris and Giverny, and a new generation of younger artists, led by Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, were challenging the achievements of Impressionism.
For this very special event, Ross King will join us for a public lecture and book signing of Mad Enchantment. Before the lecture, Book Club attendees who register in advance are invited to join King for a private reception. Mad Enchantment will be released on September 6, and copies of the book will be for sale from the Museum Shop the morning of the program. Register
Please note: Your Book Club registration will also include a reserved seat at the public lecture. Limited number avaiable.
