Chet Gold on Claude Monet’s Water Lilies

In MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, an appropriately dressed Chet Gold, manager in the Security department, talks about his spiritual connection with Claude Monet’s monumental painting Water Lilies, which creates a space “too beautiful to support anything that’s not optimism.”
