Adolphe-William Bouguereau (French, 1825-1905) created timeless works of sensual, emotional, and intellectual appeal. Educated at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he became a highly sought-after portraitist whose works were exhibited at the Salon and won medals in various international exhibitions. In Bouguereau, author Fronia E. Wissman offers astute and illuminating insights into the art, career, and family life of this great artist -- whose beautiful paintings of a better, purer time and place continue to find favor with contemporary viewers.
