Widely embraced by American collectors of the 19th century, William-Adolphe Bouguereau was once anointed the standard-bearer of cultural achievement throughout Europe. Comprising approximately 40 masterful paintings by Bouguereau, this exhibition offers a fresh look into how collecting Bouguereau’s work reflects the tastes, religious beliefs, sexual mores, social problems, and desires of American collectors from the late 1800s through the early 20th century.
