Bouguereau's "The Shell"



William-Adolph Bouguereau (1825-1905)

French artist who painted over 700 works during his career. With his wife, Marie-Nelly Monchablon, he had three sons and two daughters. All three sons died. One, Georges, at the age of 16 and another, Adolphe-Paul, reportedly died of Tuberculosis when 30. His third son, William-Maurice, died in his infancy shortly before his mother also succumbed. One daughter, Jeanne-LĂ©ontine, also died while just an infant.
