One of Bouguereau's notable works is "The Abduction of Psyche," painted in 1895. The painting depicts the mythological tale of Psyche, a mortal woman who is abducted by Eros, the god of love. Bouguereau's rendition showcases the tender moment as Eros carries Psyche through the air, surrounded by delicate clouds and ethereal light.

William Bouguereau's works have achieved notable prices at auctions. For example, his painting "Le Printemps" sold for over $10 million at a Christie's auction in 2021.
