Rosa Bonheur
b. 3-16-1822; Bordeaux, France
d. 5-25-1899; Château de By, Thomery (between the Seine and the forest of Fontainebleau)

Painter and sculptor Rosa Bonheur is best known for her art work depicting animals. The entire family was artistic, in fact, the Bonheur's were used as an example of “Hereditary Genius” by Francis Galton, the cousin of Charles Darwin.

Rosa, who had much trouble in school, attributed her love of drawing animals to her mother who taught her to write by having Rosa select and draw an animal for each letter of the alphabet.

FYI ~ the common practice of the time was to begin artistic training by copying images from drawing books and sketching from plaster models.

Rosa Bonheur quote ~
• “I was forced to recognize that the clothing of my sex was a constant bother. That is why I decided to solicit the authorization to wear men's clothing from the prefect of police. But the suit I wear is my work attire, and nothing else. The epithets of imbeciles have never bothered me....”
