W. Bouguereau

An Academist

"His mastery in draughtsmanship and painting was so phenomenal that it leads us to believe that, nothing, in the domain of art expression, could resist his immense talent. This ability comes out right in the very first paintings he exhibited at the Salon. He appears also to be the best draughtsman of his generation. His outstanding skill never failed until the very last years"
