Two Pietàs: Bouguereau & Streich

The most re­cent edi­tion of the CeReNeM Journal, run by post­gradu­ates at the University of Huddersfield, con­tains an art­icle I wrote about the painter William-Adolphe Bouguereau and Swedish com­poser Lisa Streich, ex­ploring the trope of the Pietà in their works. Thanks go to Pedro Alvarez for in­stig­ating the pro­ject and editing this volume, and to Tim Rutherford-Johnson for his eagle-eyed proof-reading.

Lisa’s music is won­derful, you should go listen to it, and as a small bonus if you are reading the art­icle on­line, you can refer to this se­lective timeline of Bouguereau’s paint­ings, which I cre­ated as an aid to my research.
