Idylle Enfantine by W. Bouguereau, 1900
"One has to seek Beauty and Truth, Sir! As I always say to my pupils, you have to work to the finish. There's only one kind of painting. It is the painting that presents the eye with perfection, the kind of beautiful and impeccable enamel you find in Veronese and Titian." --William Bouguereau, 1895

I saw this painting in the Denver Museum of Art nearly20 years ago. It stopped me in my tracks. The print does not do it justice, but is lovely just the same. I purchased it and it hangs here in my office where I can enjoy it every day. Click on the link above to see more of his heavenly paintings.
