We are proud to announce that we now have the complete translation of the Bouguereau Catalogue Raisonne. As of January 1st, 2009, we will be working with the publisher on the final layout of the images and the final editing of the William Bouguereau Catalog Raissone. We are told that from the time this occurs to the time of actual publication is 4 months. We therefore are now projecting the publication of the catalogue raisonne to be April / May of 2009*. The next update will include the actual release date of the book.
