Event description

Description

By the outbreak of war in 1914, Claude Monet was France’s most celebrated painter. However, the death of his wife in 1911 and problems with his vision left him despondent. Against this backdrop he began his most ambitious project, which would obsess him for the last dozen years of his life. This lecture by Ross King, author of 'Mad Enchantment: The painting of Monet’s water lilies' , will tell the story of Monet’s ‘Grande Décoration’, the dozens of immense canvases of his water lily garden that he hoped would be his greatest legacy.

Includes wine and nibbles.
