Rosa Bonheur

46 Discovered works of art  •  ID: #726
Realism   •   Rosa Bonheur @ Wikipedia

Rosa Bonheur was a very impressive woman. She grew up in a very modern family of artists who stood up for the emancipation of the woman and thus treated her the same way and taught her to paint as her brothers.

She was fascinated by animals and drew them as true to the original as possible. For inspiration she also spent a lot of time with animals and worked on horse markets and in slaughterhouses. In addition, the animals watched in the forest or on mountains and even kept animals in their studio.

Many criticized her because she did not correspond to the then ideal image of the woman. She was self-determined, wore men's clothes, painted mostly large animals and was intimidated by anyone. But her pictures were much admired and so she was still respected by most. She even got an official permit to wear men's clothes. Only nine other women across France were not allowed to wear men's clothing.

She became famous through the picture "The Horse Market" that allowed Queen Victoria to be privately performed. Even then, she was considered one of the most important painters and was also very successful economically. So she was able to acquire a small castle where she lived with her three-woman family and she took care of everyone. In 1894 she became the first woman ever to be an officer in the French Legion of Honor. © Meisterdrucke
