Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

The daughter of an impoverished French painter, Raimond Oscar-Marie Bonheur, Rosa Bonheur was a famous 19th-century female artist known for her depiction of horses and for her eccentric lifestyle including dressing like a man and sketching at the Paris slaughterhouse. 

Her work in realist style, eclipsed by modernism, fell into obscurity during much of the 20th century.

Rosa Bonheur spent her life in France but became associated with the American West as a collector (showing 500 of 16906 characters).
