L’Innocence depicts the Blessed Virgin holding the infant Jesus in one arm and a lamb in the other—artistically showing the truth that St. John the Baptist declared, “Behold the Lamb of God” (John 1:29).

About the Artist

William-Adolphe Bouguereau (1825–1905) was a French academic painter and traditionalist. During his life, he enjoyed significant popularity in France and the United States, was given numerous official honors, and received top prices for his work. By the early twentieth century, Bouguereau and his art fell out of favor with the public, due in part to changing tastes. In the 1980s, a revival of interest in figure painting led to a rediscovery of Bouguereau and his work. Throughout the course of his life, Bouguereau executed 822 known finished paintings, although the whereabouts of many are still unknown.
