Guess the Artist Competition Has a Winner!

Published December 14, 2009

The winner of our $1,000 competition is Joshua LaRock a former winner of an ARC Scholarship and a past student of the Water Street Atelier, an ARC Approved Atelier school. He happened to have noticed this very painting being advertized for sale on the website of Rehs Gallery and was the first of 3 people who got it right out of a few hundred who tried.

"The reason I ran this competition is because this was painted by William Bouguereau in 1875 right at the beginning of the period of Impressionism's supposed birth.
This painting singlehandedly disproves the "brilliant originality" of Impressionist techniques and their source as reported in most Modernist art history text books from the past 80 years."'
