William-Adolphe Bouguereau

For me a work of art must be an elevated interpretation of nature. The search for the ideal has been the purpose of my life. In landscape or seascape, I love above all the poetic motif.More William-Adolphe Bouguereau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

Nowadays, they want to succeed too fast, this is how they go about inventing new aesthetics, pointillism, pipisme! All this is just to make noise.More William-Adolphe Bouguereau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

It is the painting that presents the eye with perfection, the kind of beautiful and impeccable enamel you find in Veronese and Titian.More William-Adolphe Bouguereau quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
