About Waiting (Lattente)

“Waiting” is an oil on canvas painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau, created in 1902. This artwork, executed in the Academicism style, is a portrait that measures 65.4 x 116.8 cm and is part of a private collection. Bouguereau, known for his skillful technique and classical themes, captures a sense of serene beauty and contemplation in this piece.

The painting depicts a young woman standing with a slightly pensive expression. She is dressed in a soft, flowing pink garment that drapes elegantly over her form, revealing the contours of her body underneath. Her dark hair falls in loose waves around her shoulders, and she holds a long staff with both hands, adding a sense of balance and grounding to her pose. The background features a softly lit sky with hints of clouds and a landscape that recedes into the distance, creating a serene and timeless atmosphere. The artist’s meticulous attention to detail is evident in the delicate rendering of the woman’s features, the texture of the fabric, and the subtle play of light and shadow.
