Claude Monet. Claude Monet. Wikipedia

Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies tells the story of one of the most celebrated and well-known series ever executed by an artist. Claude Monet began painting water lilies in the 1890s. Renowned for their beauty and sense of tranquility, the canvases belie Monet’s frustration and torment during their creation. In addition to the water lily paintings, Mad Enchantment, written by the historian and author Ross King, explores Monet’s late Grande Decoration paintings, which are installed at the Orangerie in the Tuileries Garden in Paris.
