The Birth of Venus – Bouguereau

Artwork Description

The masterpiece The Birth of Venus by William-Adolphe Bouguereau is reproduced in amazing detail on a stretched canvas in this premium-quality print. It portrays the ideal of female form and beauty and the goddess of love in all her splendour, as well as an iconic moment in time. This classic piece of art is ideal for anyone who enjoys classical art and will look stunning in any home.

William-Adolphe Bouguereau was a well-known French academic painter who is most known for his emphasis on the female form, mythical themes, and realism. He received several honours and prizes during his career and enjoyed much respect in both France and the United States. Bouguereau’s artwork, however, lost popularity with the general public in the early 20th century as a result of shifting tastes. Bouguereau, who produced 822 recognised paintings but the whereabouts of many are still unknown, was fortunately rediscovered in the 1980s during a boom in interest in figure painting.

Flexible and helpful

We used Blue Horizon to make a beautiful piece of word art for a very special birthday. They were absolutely wonderful to deal with … they have a range of gorgeous designs, they were flexible and helpful and the resulting word art picture was absolutely loved by everyone. It’s a really special and unique gift – we collected meaningful words, memories and phrases from family members. There were tears and laughter upon the unveiling. Highly recommend!

Custom Mondrian print

I wanted vinyl wall decals of a very particular size made using a very particular Mondrian print. The staff at Blue Horizon were amazing – not only producing the decals to millimeter perfection but organising the fastest delivery to my door. They arrived in perfect condition and right on time. I will be returning to Blue Horizon again for any artwork I might be looking to purchase.

Linda Anderson

Very professional

Very professional, the team were patient with my requests and created a number of proofs, until I was happy with the final print. I live in Singapore and was expecting the shipping to take a number of weeks, I was amazed at how quickly it was sent – within a week – fully stretched and ready to hang. I love looking at it each day as I walk down my staircase, I will purchase from the team at Blue Horizon again.

Cannot say enough good things about this company. I have used them three times now for three different pieces of work (custom designed canvas, framed print of a photo taken from a holiday, framed prints off their website) and each time the quality has been outstanding
Customer service (Sally) is also super helpful and friendly!
