Rosa Bonheur (16 March 1822 – 25 May 1899) was a French artist and sculptor, known predominantly for her realistic depictions of both farm and exotic animals. Her most well-known paintings are Ploughing in the Nivernais, first exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1848, and now at Musée d'Orsay in Paris, and The Horse Fair which was exhibited at the Salon of 1853 (finished in 1855) and is now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in New York City. Bonheur is widely considered to be the most famous female painter of the nineteenth century.
