In this book is a collection of reproductions of paintings by French artist Adolphe-William Bouguereau (1825-1905), whose evocative visions of a better, purer time and place earned him a passionate following not only during his lifetime but through to the present. Author Fronia E. Wissman offers insights into the artist's work, career, and family life. And sixty exquisite full-color reproductions exemplify Bouguereau's prodigious talent in creating works of sensual, emotional, and intellectual appeal.
