Last Day for Bouguereau
What could be better than slides of Bouguereau with violins in accompaniment? Perhaps cello, viola and bass or maybe piano. Art and music were definitely different in the 19th century. If you wanted to hear music, you played an instrument. Groups of friends would get together and play. Maybe not concert quality, but they would play. No records, no cds, no iTunes, no mp3 or 4. We were all a bit more talented, not as passive at art and music. Since I'm a full fledged member of the 20th and 21st centuries and am a listener, here are slides of Bouguereau with piano and violin accompaniment composed by Ren.
