Monet’s water lily paintings are beloved as images of tranquility. However, these enormous canvases were created at a time of great sorrow and stress, as Monet coped with the death of his wife and son, his failing eyesight, and the horrors of the First World War. This illustrated lecture by art historian Ross King tells of Monet’s life in those turbulent years.
Dinner before the lecture? Start your evening with food and live music at Iris after Dark, Fridays beginning at 5:30 pm.
