Nymphs & Satyr by William-Adolphe Bougeureau
Oil painting on canvas by William-Adolphe Bouguereau is a famous French artist
who was prominent within the realism art movement and was at his peak during the late 19th century.
Artist such as:
here has been a quiet growth in the 19th Century and Victorian art markets for last several years.
Now Sotheby’s is capitalizing on that
with the sale of a huge Bouguereau painting that will be featured in the marquee Evening sale in May.
The massive painting has a $25m estimate:
Bouguereau’s life-sized oil paintings of mythological narratives were highly detailed.
With polished brushstrokes and nuanced tonal shifts,
both his technique and subject matter were antithetical to his contemporaries,
the French Impressionists, whom he played an active part in banning from the Salon each year.
Relating to his painting practice,
Bouguereau said: ”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
I cannot give myself to my dear painting I am miserable.
” Bouguereau died on August 19, 1905 in La Rochelle, France.
His works are in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago,
the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, the Louvre Museum in Paris,
and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, among others.
The son of Armenian immigrants,
Saro has witnessed much hardship, but never lost ambition.
Following in the footsteps of artists like William Bouguereau,
Saro brings to life the stories of his present world.
Unlike his classical predecessors (and even his peers),
he uses graffiti to articulate the narrative within.
Saro also make an incredible contribution to the emotional translation of street life in Van’s paintings.
