The epithets of imbeciles…


“The epithets of imbeciles have never bothered me.” Rosa Bonheur

Rosa Bonheur is an amazing artist who really brought out the realism in art. She didn’t just paint accurately from real life, she painted scenes from actual life. She even choose to wear men’s clothing in order to get to the places she needed to in order to paint. She went to the fields to paint peasants and the horse auctions to learn about horses. I think that Rosa is definitely a person that I can look to to learn about what it means to be an artist. She did not conform to her society to be accepted, rather she used her talent to change society!
