    I cannot express…

    Dear Art Renewal Center

    I cannot express how much your website has influenced me!!

    I have been listening to all the podcasts and greatly enjoy them.

    I became interested in William Bouguereau in my teens and still today find it
    disgracefull when in books such as “Famous French Painters of the 18th
    centuary” or “The top 100 painters in history” that he is not included
