Bouguereau-Young Gypsies

I have a new favorite painter, William Bouguereau.  I am amazed at his use of color and the depth of emotion!  His paintings appear to be more real than real.  You will need to click on the picture to get a true sense of the detail.  It's quite fabulous!

Yes, I'm a fan of Bouguereau too! I found an really nice site at HomeArtStore that has a pretty good collection of printable artwork by William Bouguereau. Check out the following links:

- William Bouguereau Free Printable Artwork
- Young Gypsies, Oil on canvas by William Bouguereau

I also admire deeply Bouguereau's use of oil on canvas with almost magical color combinations!
