Pure genius.

Thanks for sharing his brilliancy.


"Each day I go to my studio full of joy; in the evening when obliged to stop because of darkness I can scarcely wait for the morning to come...My work is not only a pleasure, it has become a necessity. No matter how many other things I have in my life, if I cannot give myself to my dear painting I am miserable." --William Bouguereau

Seems that he and I share our SUN, MERCURY, VENUS, MARS, and CHIRON!

I had never before seen his natal chart
nor several of his works that you posted above, Sweet!

Thank you Steven for this delightful adventure through his art.

Thank you both for your beautiful contributions!

Here was an artist par excellence, without peer.

I wish I could have met him.


26Taurus,

What a fantastic quote!

Oh, to be inspired, devoted, and "attached" to something, anything in such a way!

To suffer for something.

What a beautiful, beautiful man.

His work, his legacy, takes my breath away.

God bless us,

Stephen

In those days, did the women have razors designed for sensitive skin to shave their fur off, I wonder?


Beautiful pics.

(Sorry, I do appreciate the beautifully sensual paintings, just feeling somewhat frivolous).

The children/ cherubs have such soulful eyes.
