Rosa Bonheur

1822 - 1899
Painter
Origin: France
Born: March 16, 1822, Bordeaux, France
Died: 1899 Chaeau de By, near Fontainebleau, France

As a child, Rosa Bonheur sketched animals in the wild. En 1853, she achieved international acclaim with her 96" x 199" painting, The Horse Fair, now owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The energy and power of the draftsmanship of her horses reflect the great influence of Theodore Gericault, whose study of horses was in her studio at the time. Bonheur was also familiar with engravings, such as George Stubbs' 1794 Godolphin Arabian and George Catlin's native American subjects.
