About the Movie
The 19th-century artist William Bougereau, saw, just like his predecessors Michelangelo, Da Vinci, and Rafael, art as a divine calling. He not only transcended the techniques and colors even further but also produced over 800 delicate works of art during his lifetime which were greatly cherished all over Europe and the United States.
Even though William Bougeureau became highly awarded and was truly appreciated by the people, he also found himself at the very center of brutal attacks from the new art movements that had risen at this time. In the coming years, it would make his prestigious name almost vanish from the eyes of the public. The revival of interest in figure painting in 1980, led to a rediscovery of Bougereau and his works.
