Saint Louis Art Museum says
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.

Join us for a free lecture from author Ross King, whose newest book, Mad Enchantment, tells the full story behind the creation of the series. Linking great artistic achievement to the personal and historical dramas unfolding around it, King presents the most intimate and revealing portrait of an iconic figure in world culture. A book signing will follow.

Ross King is the author of Brunelleschi's Dome, Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling, The Judgment of Paris, Leonardo and the Last Supper, and Machiavelli: Philosopher of Power,along with two novels, Ex Libris and Domino. He has twice won Canada’s Governor General’s Award, and his work has been nominated for a National Book Critics’ Circle Award, the Charles Taylor Prize, and the National Award for Arts Writing. He has lectured at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Smithsonian, the Aspen Institute, and the Frick Collection, and in Florence, Milan, Paris, and Giverny. Born in Canada, he now lives near Oxford with his wife, Melanie.
