New Bouguereau artworks from the Catalog Raisonné are now in the ARC Museum

Published December 22, 2010

New Bouguereau artworks have been added to the ARC MuseumTwo new artworks by William Bouguereau have been added to the ARC Museum from the Catalog Raisonné on William Bouguereau, a 903 page groundbreaking two-volume publication.

La Priere of 1878 as well as the wonderful Marguerite of 1868 (shown at left) are the first of many Bouguereaus to be added.

The Bouguereau Catalog Raisonné has been hailed as the answer to the void of information on this great artist, by far the most popular among visitors to the ARC website, numbering well over 5 million per year.

Volume I, the biography, has over 340 color images of Bouguereau paintings, over 100 full page plates and yet another 170 images in black and white, most of which are biographical, including photographs of Bouguereau in his studio, family members, Bouguereau with his students, letters, drawings, etc. Volume II, the Catalog Raisonné contains information on all of Bouguereau' 828 known paintings, with over 760 images mostly printed in color (unusual for a catalog raisonné, often printed in black and white with few color illustrations).

In addition, these artworks will now be available at high resolution as prints on archival Fine Art paper or canvas.
