      Il est fort dommage pour la France que l esprit de l cole qui, depuis la Renaissance, ne faisait que s am liorer, avec bien entendu des hauts et des bas, selon les personnalit s, ait fini par tomber dans la facilit des mauvais l ves qui ont eu la faveur des journalistes parce qu ils taient du m me bord politique.Bien entendu le go t de l effort, du travail fini proprement, a disparu, tre artiste c est tre sale, quand il n y a pas de traces de doigts ou de ronds de bouteille a ne fait pas s rieux [...]

      To see pictures from the book, please visit my blog via my profile link.William Bouguereau His Life and Works is a thick tome of an art book documenting the French academic painter s biography and lifetime of work, with over 500 pages of art work covering some 750 paintings in total.The biggest draw of this book is the huge amount of reproductions collected, art work presented are mostly printed on individual pages and not spread across 2, which retains the integrity of the art work and allows [...]

      On the one hand, it is a big, fat book, about one and a half inches think The whole thing is a big biography, so you learn all about him, his friends, his family, etc Lots of big, glossy pictures The problem is, I have seen a few original paintings, and they are lighter, saturated and the flesh is pink than in this book These pictures all shift towards brown gold, and too dark in overall value All the pinks in the lips, cheeks, ears, etc is changed to brown I saw the Numpheaum at the Haggin mu [...]

      I purchased the 2 volume version of the 2014 edition The single volume version of the 2014 edition is the same as the first book of the two volume 2014 edition, so I can review both versions The books are excellent All of the reproductions are printed with excellent resolution and quality The paper and book construction are also high quality The two volume edition comes with a sturdy slipcase Some reviewers of the previous edition had poor binding quality, but I have not noticed any binding prob [...]

      The version I bought is sturdy and has a good binding I think I remember reading an early version had problems The quality of the printing of the paintings is excellent They are large and gorgeous The paper is very high quality There is considerable narrative of his life and painting but there are so many plates you don t mind at all The bits and pieces of the biography that I read were well written and interesting This was obviously a labor of love I highly recommend buying it.

      Well worth it I took the advice of other reviewers and sprang for this instead of some of the lower priced Beougereau books Couldn t be happier Beautiful book with all the info and pictures of his work that you need I spent an entire day immersed in it and have not scratched the surface Love it.
