About the Video
The 19th-century artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau saw art, just like his predecessors Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Rafael, as a divine calling. He not only excelled in the use of techniques and colors, but also produced over 800 delicate works of art during his lifetime that were greatly cherished all over Europe and the United States.
Even though Bouguereau became highly awarded and was truly appreciated by the people, he also found himself at the very center of brutal attacks from the new art movements that had risen at the time. In the coming years, it would make his prestigious name almost vanish from the eyes of the public. The revival of interest in figure painting in 1980 led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his works.
