Description

Wlliam-Adolphe Bouguereau, (born Nov. 30, 1825, La Rochelle, Fr. – died Aug. 19, 1905, La Rochelle), French painter, a dominant figure in his nation’s Academic painting during the second half of the 19th century.
Bouguereau entered the École des Beaux-Arts in 1846 and was awarded the Prix de Rome in 1850. Upon his return to France from four years’ study in Italy, he attracted a wide following with his mythological and allegorical paintings, although his portrait paintings are perhaps held in higher esteem today.
