The Luscious Beauty of William Bouguereau’s Four Seasons

In this 60-Second Gallery, bask in the golden splendor of William Bouguereau’s 'Les Quatre Saisons’. The artist's natural instinct for contour and reverence for classicism are on full display in this majestic personification of the four seasons. One of the few of his early commissions left in private hands, ‘Les Quatre Saisons’ establishes the artist as the preeminent French Academic painter of his time. 'Les Quatre Saisons: Le Printemps, L’été, L’Automne, L’Hiver’ has spent the last 150 years in the Monlun Family Collection and will now be revealed as a highlight of Sotheby’s European Art Auction on 22 May in New York.
