Rosa Bonheur with Bull (1857)

A painting by Edouard-Louis Dubufe, which I thought had quite a bizarre composition until I read the biography of the lady, and discovered that she achieved her fame as a painter of animals. It's still a bizarre image, but at least now it makes more sense.

Found at Miss Folly.

  3. We recently bought 2 C19th prints of cattle from an antique shop for £60, and one of them (the better one)is signed by Rosa Bonheur. She didn't do the print but it's copied from one of her paintings, and the signature is genuine I think. I researched her a bit and it made me even more pleased to have it - a fascinating woman.
