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.
