The serene beauty of Monet’s water lily paintings belies the turmoil out of which they were created. King’s sympathetic and insightful account focuses on the period when Monet stopped painting, grief-stricken by the death of his wife and facing the onset of blindness. As the guns roared on the Western Front, his friend Georges Clemenceau, the French premier, encouraged him to take up his brushes again. This book tells the compelling story behind Monet’s most iconic works of art.
