Bouguereau - Nymphs and Satyr

William-Adolphe Bouguereau- Nymphs and Satyr - 1873
Clark Art Institut
William-Adolphe Bouguereau was one of the greatest Academic painters in late 19th century France. His paintings were bought by rich Americans because of the beauty of his female figures. This painting was hung in a NYC bar until 1900 when it was sold to a buyer, who stored in in a warehouse to keep its lewd content away from the public eye. Eventually purchased by the Clark family, it now hangs in the Clark Art Institute. To see the original: Nymphs and Satyr
