    Dear Mr. Ross,

    The magnificent Catalog Raissoné on William Bouguereau arrived. Please accept my heartfelt appreciation for the monumental effort to write and publish it. I have begun the pleasant journey through it's words and images into the life of one of history's greatest artists. It was back in the early '80s that I first saw Bouguereau's work in a small gallery catalog. I was hooked and immediately set out to find books about this obviously great and important artist. Inquiries at Washington DC's finest art book store turned up nothing. And so it was for these many years. Save for Fronia Wissman's 1996 monograph, Bouguereau seemed nonexistent in the world of art history ... until now. Your publication is brilliantly conceived. It's beautiful design and quality invite display equal to any valuable work of art. How regretful that Mr. Bartoli passed away before its publication. One can only hope that he is now present with William Bouguereau chatting about the little biographical details lost to us by so called art historians who didn't recognize the importance of such a great artist. Again, my thanks to you and everyone associated with this magnificent publication!
