William-Adolphe Bouguereau

William-Adolphe Bouguereau 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.
Born: November 30, 1825, La Rochelle, France
Died: August 19, 1905, La Rochelle, France
Education: École nationale supérieure des Beaux-Arts
Periods: Neoclassicism, Academic art, L'art pompier, Realism
Parents: Théodore Bouguereau, Marie Marguérite Bouguereau
"Bouguereau was a staunch traditionalist whose genre paintings and mythological themes were modern interpretations of Classical subjects, both pagan and Christian, with a concentration on the naked female human body. The idealized world of his paintings brought to life goddesses, nymphs, bathers, shepherdesses, and madonnas in a way that appealed to wealthy art patrons of the era.

Bouguereau employed traditional methods of working up a painting, including detailed pencil studies and oil sketches, and his careful method resulted in a pleasing and accurate rendering of the human form. His painting of skin, hands, and feet was particularly admired. He also used some of the religious and erotic symbolism of the Old Masters, such as the ""broken pitcher"" which connoted lost innocence.

Bouguereau received many commissions to decorate private houses, public buildings, and churches. As was typical of such commissions, Bouguereau would sometimes paint in his own style, and at other times conform to an existing group style. Early on, Bouguereau was commissioned in all three venues, which added enormously to his prestige and fame. He also made reductions of his public paintings for sale to patrons, of which The Annunciation (1888) is an example. He was also a successful portrait painter and many of his paintings of wealthy patrons remain in private hands.

Bouguereau steadily gained the honors of the Academy, reaching Life Member in 1876, and Commander of the Legion of Honor and Grand Medal of Honor in 1885. He began to teach drawing at the Académie Julian in 1875, a co-ed art institution independent of the École des Beaux-Arts, with no entrance exams and with nominal fees.

In 1877, both his wife and infant son died. At a rather advanced age, Bouguereau was married for the second time in 1896, to fellow artist Elizabeth Jane Gardner Bouguereau, one of his pupils. He used his influence to open many French art institutions to women for the first time, including the Académie française.

Near the end of his life he described his love of his art: ""Each day I go to my studio full of joy; in the evening when obliged to stop because of darkness I can scarcely wait for the next morning to come ... if I cannot give myself to my dear painting I am miserable."" He painted 826 paintings."

BMW and Madonna. Directed by Guy Ritchi



In its galaxy of talent .....

Sometimes be strong - it does not do anything, and vice versa - to apply a force - it means showing weakness.
Force for me - this is the ultimate wisdom. Wisdom relevance.
In the world, perhaps the most important thing - to know their place. "

"My success is not confusing to me, because it came as the result, but did not fall from the sky."

2.jpg



"I do not sell or rent rent their sexuality. And nobody owns.
Even those who really divides or shared my bed.
By its very large in bed with Madonna'm just me.
I belong only to myself. "

3.jpg



"What I show people my body without clothes, does not mean that I exposed every inch of his soul."
Man can not be homo-, bi-, heterosexual. He or sexy, or - not.

by Saba at Las Brujas

"Everyone probably thinks that I nimfomanyachka that I have an insatiable
sexual appetite, but in truth, I'd rather read a book. "

"The world does not revolve around me and is not obliged to serve my interests. Simply no good and simply evil.
If you look back and analyze your life, you know: to change, to learn, to grow, to become wiser, more receptive, more helps us exactly what we perceive as bad.
So is there evil at all? "

6.jpg



"My law: no one bothered. Did not condemn anyone. Do not blame others for your troubles ...
Do not pretend, do not make excuses, do not ask, do not rely on others ...
trust those who feel, that is your own intuition. "

7.jpg



"50 years - a good time to look at things from a material point of view, but ... with the realistic.
And realistically acknowledge that there is a love without condition, without the benefit is helpful, there is devotion without selfishness.
This is my realism. "

To say that Madonna - the singer, is to say nothing. Songwriter, a professional dancer, actress, producer, director, screenwriter, charity, writer ... who can boast such
entries in the book work?

Only one woman in the world.
Birthday: August 16, 1958
