Bouguereau and America

Published February 25, 2020

Comprising nearly 40 masterful paintings by Bouguereau, this exhibition will bring together many of the artist’s most important works, such as Le repos, 1879; Young Girl Defending Herself Against Eros, ca. 1880; Homer and his Guide, 1874, and Jeune ouvrière, 1869. This exhibition also includes a long time favorite by Bouguereau at The San Diego Museum of Art – The Young Shepherdess, 1885. Bouguereau & America offers a fresh look into how collecting Bouguereau’s work reflects the tastes, religious beliefs, sexual mores, social problems, and desires of American collectors, particularly during the late 1800s through the early 20th century.

The exhibition runs until March 15, 2020 at The San Diego Museum of Art, 1450 El Prado, Balboa Park, San Diego, CA.
