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

Ross King
Bloomsbury USA

Bestselling author Ross King offers a scrupulously researched account of Monet's water lily paintings. Decorating museums around the world, the artwork inspired by Monet's gardens at Giverny evoke peace and harmony. Yet, as King writes, the beauty of the paintings belies Monet's intense frustrations in creating them -- from capturing the fugitive effects of light and water, to his failing vision and grieving over the death of his wife.
