William Bouguereau is unquestionably one of history's greatest artistic geniuses.
Yet in the past century, his reputation and unparalleled accomplishments have undergone a libelous, dishonest, relentless and systematic assault of immense
proportions. His name was stricken from most history texts
and when included it was only to blindly, degrade and disparage him and his work. Yet, as we shall see,
it was he who single handedly opened the French academies to women, and it was he who was arguably the greatest painter of
the human figure in all of art history. His figures come to life like no previous artist has ever before or ever since achieved. He wasn’t
just the best ever at painting human anatomy, more importantly he captured the tender and subtlest nuances of personality and mood.
Bouguereau caught the very souls and spirits of his subjects much like Rembrandt. Rembrandt
is said to have captured the soul of age. Bouguereau captured the soul of youth.
