Isidore Jules Bonheur (1827-1901)
Isidore Bonheur was born in Bordeaux, (Gironde), on May 15, 1827 and died in Paris in 1901. Isidore, the younger brother of Rosa Bonheur, began his studies of painting initially with his father, and subsequently at the Ecole des Beaux Arts. By 1848, he discontinued animal and landscape painting to concentrate on sculpture.
He debuted at the Paris Salon in 1848, with the painting and plaster group An African Horseman attacke (showing 500 of 3533 characters).
