William Bouguereau

i had the good fortune to visit France recently and one of the first things i did was visit the house of William Bouguereau. i had to see where this master painter lived and worked.

"Although relatively little is known about it, Bouguereau's private life was less happy. In 1856 he married Marie-Nelly Monchablon (1836-1877) with whom he had five children, three sons and two daughters. They lived together with his domineering mother in a
purposely-built large house and studio at 75, rue Notre-Dame des Champs in the Montparnasse, an area of Paris popular with artists to this day."
