The Painting Practices of William Bouguereau

16 July, 2018 to 27 July, 2018


Angel Academy of Art Florence
10 Via Nardo di Cione, Firenze, Toscana 50121

Bouguereau and his fellow academicians practiced a method of painting that had been developed and refined over the centuries in order to bring to vivid life imagined scenes from history, literature, and fantasy.”

In this two-week workshop students will be introduced the various skills used by Bouguereau to create his pictures. The croquis, figure drawings, compositional sketches, color studies, and cartoons will be discussed.

Student work will center on painting various copies in which all stages of the painting process will be discussed, from the initial colour lay-in to the finishing touches. 

The high-resolution images to be copied shall be provided in the first week of the workshop.
