William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825–1905) was a French painter who used mythological themes, making modern interpretations of classical subjects, with an emphasis on the female human body.

During his life, Bouguereau enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work.

During the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art was not what the public wanted anymore due to the changing tastes but in the 1980s, a  interest in figure painting led to a recapture of Bouguereau and his work.

All in all, he finished 822 known paintings, yet the placements of them are still yet to be known.
