1) Rosa Bonheur, born in Bordeaux, France on March 16, 1822 to May 25, 1899 (aged 77), was a French artist known best as a painter of animals. She also made sculptures in a realist style.

2) Her father was Oscar-Raymond Bonheur, a landscape and portrait painter who encouraged his daughter's artistic talents. At fourteen, she began to copy paintings at the Louvre.

3) A French government commission led to Bonheur's first great success, 'Ploughing in the Nivernais,' exhibited in 1849 and now in the Musee d'Orsay in Paris.

4) In 1859 her success enabled her to move to the Chateau de By near Fontainebleau, not far from Paris, where she lived for the rest of her life. The house is now a museum dedicated to her.

5) Women were often only reluctantly educated as artists in Bonheur's day, and by becoming such a successful artist she helped to open doors to the women artists who followed her.

6) One of Bonheur's works, 'Monarchs of the Forest,' sold at auction in 2008 for just over $200,000. On March 16, 2022, Google honored Bonheur with a Doodle to mark the bicentennial of her birth.
