ROSA BONHEUR

Continuing Mrs. Peare's series of biographies, this adds another title to a growing list and in its own quiet way establishes something of Rosa Bonheur's importance as a painter and of the many sides of her personality. Almost universally famous as the creator of The Horse Fair, almost nothing more is known of her. This will give interested youngsters an opportunity to learn more- of her family life which was often struggling and sad, of her daring to do many things that were supposed to be for men only, of her long apprenticeship and its gratifying results. Not a study that gives much indication of Rosa Bonheur's real place in French painting but one that makes a beginning.
