The Art Renewal Center® is pleased to announce the release of the Catalog Raissoné and Biography on William Bouguereau, concluding a 30 year effort by a small determined team of 19th Century Art experts, set to fill the void of information on Bouguereau, one of history’s greatest masters after a century of misinformation.
Vol I: Biography
Vol II: Catalog Raisonné
|The Catalog Raisonné jointly published by the Art Renewal Center® and the Antique Collectors Club, includes information on all of William Bouguereau's 828 known paintings, as well as the entire 600 page biography written by Damien Bartoli, with Fred Ross, ARC Chairman and President of the Bouguereau Committee.|
This two-volume boxed set illustrates the complete oeuvre of paintings of this great master, with information on all of William Bouguereau's 828 known paintings, as well as the entire 600 page biography written by Damien Bartoli, with Fred Ross, ARC Chairman and President of the Bouguereau Committee.
The huge scope of Bouguereau's work was immensely famous and popular in his own time and then was suppressed for nearly a century, resurfacing in 1980 when the Met hung 2 of his works. His popularity has gained momentum steadily ever since, and today he is widely recognized as the most popular and beloved of the Academic artists who preceded Impressionism. Diverse, his works span monumental, religious and mythical compositions. But most beloved of all are his deeply touching scenes exploring the depths of human emotions from early childhood through young adult; Poetic renderings of the psychology of youth married to impeccable technical perfection found in an unparalleled number of original and powerful compositions in one masterpiece after another.
Due to additional funding we were able to dramatically upgrade the publication which will now include the following:
Volume I (Biography)Over 340 color images of Bouguereau paintings in Volume I aloneOver 100 full page plates, twice as many as originally projected Another 170 images in black and white, most of which are biographical, including photographs of Bouguereau in his studio, family members, Bouguereau with his students, letters, drawings, etc.
Volume II (Catalog Raisonné)Volume II will now also be printed in color, with some black and white depending on the best image available to us for each given work, over 760 images are included. This is a two volume boxed set
|First printing was only 2,000 and they are going fast.|
