Monet has long been hailed as the leading Impressionist landscape painter, but his art and life are often wrapped in a mythology that runs counter to the historical record.
This lecture will separate fact from fiction and offer new insights into some of his most popular works, particularly his late Water-Lilies that he painted up until his death in 1926.
Paul Hayes Tucker is Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Boston.
