“With a fiction writer’s feel for character” (Philadelphia Inquirer), Ross King is the author of several nonfiction works that situate art within the context of the history in which it was born, including the New York Times bestsellers Brunelleschi’s Dome, Michelangelo and the Pope’s CeilingThe Judgment of Paris, and Leonardo and the Last Supper—an examination of Da Vinci’s transcendence of political, religious, and inner turmoil to create the masterpiece that would forever define him. In Mad Enchantment, King paints a portrait of the artistic struggles and personal torments churning below the pre-eminent Impressionist’s tranquil creations.
