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

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.

"...absolutely SPEECHLESS after being engrossed in your masterpiece work showcasing Bouguereau

December 16, 2010

...in such a spectacular, fresh approach and in a manner deserved of the greatest artist that ever lived!"
Dear Mr. Ross,

WHY did it take me two days to email you about your Herculean accomplishment, namely the William Bouguereau Catalog Raisonne? There is only one answer: my husband and I were absolutely SPEECHLESS after being engrossed in your masterpiece work showcasing Bouguereau in such a spectacular, fresh approach and in a manner deserved of the greatest artist that ever lived!

I will try to relay our thoughts into words...Your introduction is a superb work in itself, touching on many issues never approached by today's supposed art history scholars: ending rumors and outright lies about William Bouguereau as a "villain of the modernist movement"; stating the fact that this Bouguereau raisonne is a "roadmap" for future historians; the chasm between cultural, societal and political history and art history; the irony of the importance of social and political issues of poverty, indigence, and the like, to writers contemporary to Bouguereau, yet those same subjects were considered by art critics to be banal, stylized, insipid and irrelevant for Bouguereau and his realist contemporaries.... an interesting juxtaposition...The all-too true "mindless standard" that ruined Realist art's reputation.

Your points are precise, affirmed by documented facts, and well taken by the reader; they set the tone for the two volume triumph. You are speaking to the reader, not at the reader, in a refreshing cadence unlike most verbose scholarly publications.
