Great Women in Art History: Rosa Bonheur

This month, we will discuss Rosa Bonheur, the most famous female painter in Europe in the 19th century. Bonheur had an amazingly liberal upbringing for the era–her father was a member of a group that believed that women should be educated as equally as men. Rosa went on to become a professional painter and won awards and accolades for her paintings of animals. She was also known for her modern lifestyle, wearing pants and smoking cigarettes, habits that were quite rare for women at the time. We will look at Bonheur’s award-winning works and discuss how she embodied the idea of the “New Woman” in the 1800’s. Presented by Ann Shifflet from Columbus College of Art and Design.
