Join us for a delightful tour of Bouguereau & America, and afterward, enjoy tea and treats in the Terrace Room. This exhibition explores William-Adolphe Bouguereau’s remarkable popularity in the United States. The artist’s highly polished interpretations of classical subjects — including heroic men, sensuous goddesses and playful cupids, as well as his intimate and idealized portrayal of peasant life were avidly sought after by American collectors.
