Bonheur's Portrait
of Buffalo Bill
and His Horse
Who was Rosa Bonheur? Rosa Bonheur was a 19th-century artist who specialized in paintings and sculptures of animals. Born on March 16, 1822, in Bordeaux, France, she became the first female recipient of the Grand Cross of the French Legion of Honor. Emperor Louis-Napoleon opposed the idea of women receiving the honor, so someone else presented it to her when he was out of town. Bonheur became known as much for her casual promoting of women's rights as for her art. At a time when women did not wear pants or smoke cigarettes, Bonheur did both. She needed and received police permission to wear pants as she traveled and worked within the city limits of Paris, where she spent much time in slaughterhouses, observing and dissecting animals to better understand their anatomy.

Rosa Bonheur 羅莎邦賀 (1822-1899) 第一次知道羅莎邦賀,是因為這本書:「女性,藝術與權力」,書中最後一篇文章:「為什麼沒有偉大的女性藝術家?」,作者從藝術家的養成及商業市場的體系, 解釋早期女性因為難以進入藝術產業的體系,無法產生足夠的女性藝術工作者,更別說從中能出類拔粹.而羅莎邦賀是少數女性藝術工作......
