La Naissance de Venus, 1859: Canvas Replica Painting: Grande
(The Birth of Venus) By artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), in a Private Collection
As a shell transports Venus from the sea to Cyprus, Bouguereau's tour de force painting displays the artist s mastery over sumptuous female form and metaphorical subject. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and subtle its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.

   William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905)

William had a long, successful career as an academic painter, exhibiting in the annual Paris Salons for more than 50 years. His paintings of religious, mythological, and genre subjects were carefully composed and painstakingly finished. Thus he opposed the admission of works by the impressionists to the Salon, because he believed that their paintings were no more than unfinished sketches. After a period of neglect following his death, Bouguereau's paintings were returned to view as part of a renewed interest in and reappraisal of academic painting and of Ecole des Beaux-Arts works in general. A major retrospective exhibition opened in Paris and was seen in Montreal and Hartford, Conn., in 1984.
