Members get early access! 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.
Bouguereau & America opens to the public at noon on November 9, 2019.
