William Bouguereau (1825-1905) was a highly important and influential French academic painter, who taught a long succession of gifted students, primarily at the private Academie Julien in Paris. Bouguereau wanted to become a serious history painter and his efforts paid off in 1850 when he won the much coveted Prix de Rome (meaning that the French government paid him to stay in Rome and study art). After his studies in Italy, he established his reputation in Paris as a premier history painter, portraitist, and decorator of churches during the 1850s and 1860s. He was elected to the Academie des Beaux-Arts in 1876 and remained an important and influential member for 30 years. His large output of Salon paintings was consistently praised by critics, often purchased by the French state, and frequently reproduced in the press. He won numerous awards throughout his career and can be seen as the epitome of the French Academy. Originally published as part of the two-volume set, now available for the first time as a single volume, this edition includes a chapter entitled 'William Bouguereau's Nymph and Satyr'. It is a detailed discussion of the painting, one of his most significant works, and is written by Kara Lysandra Ross. Today, more than 100 museums and galleries across the world exhibit Bouguereau's work, including the Musee d'Orsay (Paris), the Denver Art Museum, The Art Institute of Chicago, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York) The Hermitage (St. Petersburg), Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery (UK), Chi-Mei Museum (Taiwan), Tyne & Wear Museums (UK).

The publication of these two volumes on the French academic painter heralds a welcome opportunity to reassess the Artist's Oeuvre. --Apollo -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

3.0 von 5 Sternen Some thoughts before you buy... 7. Januar 2011
Von Old Holland - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I held off writing a review because I did not have an actual copy in hand to warrant a completely fair assessment but with others experiencing the same problems with the glue used in the binding I figured it worthwhile to give some thought to those contemplating spending $300 to buy this set.

While I do not have a copy of my own, I did get the opportunity to thumb through one and in that particular specimen an entire block of pages had completely fallen apart from spine - even though the rest of the volume was brand new. At the time I thought this was a singular defect but now it (possibly?) appears to be endemic amongst the entire production run. I am curious how those 5 star reviewer's copies are holding up?

Aside from the questionable quality of the book's construction (which should never have been an issue for an item in this price range) I did not find anything special about the overall quality of the images either. Now, I can only pretend to grasp the difficultly in compiling a complete collection of Bouguereau's finished works - but for this reviewer's tastes - I thought this catalog contained far too many images that were either too small, in black and white, or contained colors that were off the mark (ie. too yellow/orange). I am told many catalog raisonnés suffer from this problem and one should be thankful to have the option of purchasing this book, but from the nauseatingly self-aggrandizing posts by the authors on Art Renewal Center you would think this was perhaps one of the greatest art history projects ever committed to paper. And if their investment piece hinting at the secondary market value of this book has any grain of truth in it, it is that a near-mint copy of this book with original binding will certainly carry a premium over all others.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Worst material ever used to bind an art book! 24. Dezember 2010
Von R.O. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is gorgeous but the materials used to bind it are cheap. I've looked through this book three or four times and the binding is already falling apart. Every time I open the front cover I can hear the glue cracking and tearing off the binding. Today I noticed a tear an inch long on the top right corner of the spine.

The book cover that is used is a black canvas textured paper. It's imitation to the black, canvas like cloth used in Singapore to bind the John Singer Sargent books or the two volume set of N.C. Wyeth. The Bouguereau book is heavy and with more than 500 pages the cover should be made with sturdier material that can withstand the size and weight.

4.0 von 5 Sternen What could have been! 4. Januar 2011
Von jpcooper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is, for the most part, everything a Bouguereau admirer could have hoped for. In the few cases where images were less than perfect the fault was not the compiler's or the printer's. Many of these images are the only examples to be found. It is not difficult to believe this undertaking took decades to accomplish. This set should, by all rights, have received all of the 5 stars available, however, the production quality does not quite live up to the rest of the offering. The paper should have been heavier as many on the sheets, in the copy I purchased, already had small interior creases suggesting the lightest handling may cause damage. This is very annoying as it distracts from the pleasure of gazing at Bouguereau's magnificent work. The binding itself was not quite the quality one usually finds, and has come to expect, in books published by Antique Collectors Club. Volumes of this size and weight need VERY sturdy bindings. The slipcase could have been constructed a bit heavier as well. In addition to these criticisms the copy I received had a 5" scratch in the center of the slipcase directly on top of the affixed color image. Had I honestly believed another copy might be less problematic I would have returned this one. All that being said, I would again make this purchase as the contents of this collection are too breathtaking to be without. It is a shame that such a monumental effort should have been shortchanged in this fashion. With a little upgrade in materials there would not have been enough stars in the firmament to do it justice. Where's the pride?

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great undertaking, poorly manufactured. 7. Juli 2011
Von Aleisha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
A lovely book, but like many other reviewers I found the binding to be terrible. There were pages that were compleatly loose. The reproduction are good; would have been better on a higher quality coated paper. It has a number of illustrations not available elsewere (at least not that I have seen).

5.0 von 5 Sternen By far the best catalogue raisonne I have 3. März 2011
Von Glenn T - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I was suprised to read some reviews complaining about the binding and page quality, being blissfully unaware of any such defects.
What I have been aware of is this being by far the best catalogue raisonne I have. The size, amount, and color quality of the reproductions is fantastic, especially when compared to most such volumes that are filled with small and/or predominately black and white reproductions. I have such a volume on the work of L'Hermitte, of whose art I also cannot get enough of. While that one is more broad in scope, covering pastels, drawings, and charcoals as well as paintings, the majority are shown in a very small black & white format. And when purchased years ago that one volume was at least as expensive as the two Bouguereau volumes.

It was a long time waiting for this labour of love to hit the press. The depth of scholarship and research justifies the wait. I do wish that this publication also included Bouguereau's incredible drawings as well as his studies, albeit some are included. That however was not the focus of this project, and I would not have wanted to wait another decade for those to be fully compiled before seeing all of these gorgeous paintings.
If you are at all a fan of Bouguereau, there is no reason not to get this two volume set while you can. It is a joy and an inspiration!
