Opening Day for Bouguereau & America

Location: The San Diego Museum of Art

Saturday, November 9
Noon-5:00 p.m.

Bouguereau & America opens to the public at noon on November 9.

Widely embraced by American collectors of the 19th century, William-Adolphe Bouguereau was once anointed the standard-bearer of cultural achievement throughout Europe. But by the 20th century, he was scorned by modernist critics and relegated to a footnote in art history where he remained for over a century. Comprising nearly 40 masterful paintings, Bouguereau & America will bring together many of the artist’s most important works with a fresh look into how collecting Bouguereau’s work reflects the lifestyles of American collectors in the late 19th through early 20th centuries.

Members receive early access to the exhibition at our Members’ Preview from 10:00 a.m.–noon on November 9.
