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.
