Monet's “Water Lilies” have our back | Chet Gold | UNIQLO ARTSPEAKS

At a time when we could all use more beauty in our lives, “the Water Lilies have our back.” An appropriately dressed Chet Gold, manager in MoMA’s 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.”
