The Horse Fair by Rosa Bonheur

Rosa Bonheur The Horse Fair

 

The Horse Fair by Rosa Bonheur, oil on canvas, 96 1/4″ x 199 1/2″, 1853.

If you ever get to visit the Met in NYC, find this amazing painting.  Rosa Bonheur [1822-1899] was a French painter known for her animal art.  She had shown her work in two Salons and was awarded the Legion of Honor but was more popular in the United Kingdom than in France.  The scale and details of this work are just amazing; it takes up a wall and takes you right to the scene being shown.
