Looking for a William Bouguereau Book




Hi!

Can anybody help me finding a book about the work of William Bouguereau?

Can't find it around here, in Portugal, and some search on the net didnt make any result either.

Thanks in advance,
Rui.

A search on the word Bouguereau on Amazon.com turned up six results, a couple of which might be what you're looking for.

This is the only book available on Bouguereau that I know about
Bouguereau by Fronia E. Wissman


It can be ordered online from Amazon.com.

Thank you very much, Cynthia and Michele.

Yes, I found the one from Fronia E. Wissman to be nice.

There is just one thing: I am interested on this book mainly because I would like to have a try on a copy of my Bouguereau's favorite painting, the one called "The Little Beggars". That's why I need a large enough photo of it. Do you think that book has large enough photos for me to use them as a reference when painting?

Thanks again!
Rui

P. S. Is it normal to use computer printers for this purpose, to get photo references to work with? I am asking this because I have tried it and the colors turned out so diferent!

Art Renewal Center has high resolution images and you an also order a post, but it seems no Little Beggars.
