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.

HASH(0x902f54f8) von 5 Sternen The best William Bouguereau art book out there. 6. August 2014
Von blauereiter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe

William Bouguereau : His Life and Works is a thick tome of an art book documenting the French academic painter's biography and lifetime of work, with over 500 pages of art work covering some 750 paintings in total.

The biggest draw of this book is the huge amount of reproductions collected, art work presented are mostly printed on individual pages and not spread across 2, which retains the integrity of the art work and allows for great appreciation. Colors can be a little over saturated and punchy, and some can be more crisp, but overall the quality is still great.

Technical note : There are numerous customer reviews on Amazon ( dated 2011 ) noting the weak binding used for the book, but this doesn't not seem to afflict the 2014 edition. My own observation is that the spine can be thicker for a book of such substantial size to make the build sturdier, but I don't consider it a "fatal" flaw; certainly not serious enough to pass up such a great collection of Bouguereau's work.

On another note, Amazon's item page lists the book's page count at 400 pages, which is incorrect. The book is 530 pages.

At the time of writing this review I do not believe there are any other art books on Bouguereau that comes close to the scope and sheer quantity of art work covered in this huge volume. My highest recommendations.

HASH(0x8f5ee3c0) 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.

HASH(0x8f5f3ba0) 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.

HASH(0x8f5f3bb8) von 5 Sternen Order this set NOW - They are practically giving it away! 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?

2014 Update - Folks, don't hesitate to purchase this newest edition. At the price it's being offered at it's a steal. I bought my first set for $300 and never regretted it. I wish the price was this low when I made my purchase. Seriously, if you are a Bouguereau fan (and who in their right mind isn't) this is a no-brainer. Don't bother asking why they're practically giving these books away, just place your order NOW! Thanks Amazon & Thanks Antique Collectors Club.

BTW - I just did a side by side comparison between these two editions and I can't see any difference at all. They are identical in every respect. I bought an extra set as a gift it was such a good deal!

BTW (part 2) Looks like the price took a big jump. When I re-ordered this two vol. set it was $120.00. I don't know if it will go back down again?

HASH(0x8f5f3a8c) von 5 Sternen Great undertaking, poorly manufactured. 7. Juli 2011
Von Aleisha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

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).
