A three-dimensional rendition of 19th-century artist Bouguereau's tour de force, this fine sculpture presents beautiful Venus, goddess of love and beauty, atop the shell that transported her from the sea to Cyprus. Capturing the artist's mastery of the sumptuous female form, this stately sculpture translates the mythological goddess into a bonded marble resin work worthy of any fine gallery collection.
  • About The Artist

      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.
