First Kiss

The bookmark with the detail of the painting "The First Kiss" by William Bouguereau from Austria.

William Bouguereau was a staunch traditionalist whose realistic genre paintings and mythological themes were modern interpretations of Classical subjects with a heavy emphasis on the female human body. Although he created an idealized world, his almost photo-realistic style was popular with rich art patrons.
