More About William Adolphe Bouguereau’s Nymphs and Satyr
Painted in 1873, Nymphs and Satyr is a lifelike oil painting on canvas that shows a group of Nymphs bathing in a pond.
The lustful painting includes a Satyr surprising the nymphs in such a situation.
The Nymphs try to dampen Satyr’s lust by dragging him into the pond’s cold water.
Like most of Bouguereau’s painting, even this one has a photo-like style and give prominence to historical and mythological subjects.
The painting was completed just before the Paris Salon opened, and the painting made it to the exhibition.
Nymphs and Satyr was published with a 1st century A.D. Roman poem, “Conscious of his shaggy hide and from childhood untaught to swim, he dares not trust himself to deep waters.”
The composition of the painting beautifully captures the movement of the scene.
The rhythmical art allows one to stare at it for an extended period, absorbing the wonder.
Our artists have spent days studying this painting and honing this compositional beauty.
All this, just so that you could have an authentic experience of Nymphs and Satyr.
