William-Adolphe Bouguereau

Hi everyone,

Today I have an update for you of nine William-Adolphe Bouguereau paintings.  This was a request from Janice....thanks for the request Janice, I just may have to do a few more sets; wonderful paintings!!

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825 - 1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist.  In his realistic genre paintings he used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body.  During his life he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work.  As the quintessential salon painter of his generation, he was reviled by the Impressionist avant-garde.  By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art feel out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes.  in the 1980's, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work.  Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 know finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown.

This is a two tile painting that is base game compatible.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by! I am someone who appreciates art and music, being an advanced classical pianist and novice violinist; I believe art and music go hand in hand. I love visiting museums and reading up on art. Creating these little masterpieces for the Sims 3 has given me the opportunity to express my art side. I hope you enjoy!

These are stunning. Would you at all consider converting some of these to Sims 4 files? There are not many elegant paintings for the Sims 4 and I have been in desperate need of these.
