Mad Enchantment: Claude Monet and the Painting of the Water Lilies
Nov 7, 2018
Claude Monets "Water Lilies" offer images of great beauty and tranquility. Ironically, these canvases were created at a time of great sorrow and anxiety as Monet struggled with old age, ill health and self-doubt, and as France was plunged into the horrors of World War I. This illustrated lecture presented by award-winning author Ross King will tell the full story, personal and historical, behind the painting of these icons of 20th-century art. This event is co-hosted by the Telfair Academy Guild.
Tickets: $75 lecture and luncheon; $35 lecture only
