A fascinating personality, Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899) is the artist of paradoxes. An outstanding creator who is still too little known, she was nevertheless the best animal artist of her time and was able to impose her freedom and independence in this very strict 19th century.

The artist

Rosa Bonheur (dit), Bonheur Marie Rosalie (1822-1899)

Marie-Rosalie Bonheur, known as Rosa Bonheur, born on March 16, 1822 in Bordeaux and died on May 25, 1899 in Thomery, was a French painter and sculptor, specializing in genre scenes with animals, animal painting and sculpture. The fame she enjoyed during her lifetime quickly faded after her death; her painting was too far from modern trends. From 1980 onwards, biographical publications associated her with the beginnings of feminism because of the very emancipated life she led.
