William-Adolphe Bouguereau - Biblis (1880) . @lagra _art 📍Private Collection Bouguereau became a student at the École des Beaux-Arts. To supplement his formal training in drawing, he attended anatomical dissections and studied historical costumes and archeology. He was admitted to the studio of François-Édouard Picot, where he studied painting in the academic style. Dante and Virgil in Hell (1850) was an early example of his neo-classical works. Academic painting placed the highest status on historical and mythological subjects, and Bouguereau determined to win the Prix de Rome, which would gain him a three-year residence at the Villa Medici in Rome, Italy, where in addition to formal lessons he could study first-hand the Renaissance artists and their masterpieces, as well as Greek, Etruscan, and Roman antiquities #art #artist #classic #classicalart #art t_spotlight #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart #oilportrait #classicalrealism #portraitstudy #arthistory #art #artist st #fineart #classicalart #art #artistsoninstagram #instaart #instaartwork #artists #painting #paintingsdaily #dailyart #oilpainting #oilart #drawings ting #oilart #drawings #heartit #sketchbook #likelike #classicart #oiloncanvas #artlover #oilpaints #italianart #conterporaryart #impressionistart #oilportrait ilportrait
