About Bouguereau

Published April 17, 2009

The French artist Bouguereau was the greatest of the 19th century academic painters. I have always been in awe of this artist. He was as fine a technician as any painter who has ever lived. His design skills were incredible and his color though restrained, makes his figures seem alive. I think his ability to paint the figure and the color of flesh is unmatched by any other artist who has succeeded him.Portrait of the Artist by William Bouguereau
