Young Priestess, 1902: Framed Canvas Replica Painting: Large
By artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905) in a Private Collection
Bouguereau's priestess rules with a stern and youthful beauty that forecasts a stormy pronouncement over her subjects. With a prodigal skill for art that's been compared to Mozart's for music, French artist Bouguereau produced over 700 finished works in his lifetime. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. Our replica European style, bright gold-toned, ribbed frame is cast in quality designer resin with an acanthus leaf and floret border that draws the eye toward the beautiful image.
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.
