Rosa Bonheur was a famous 19th-century female artist known for her depiction of horses and for her eccentric lifestyle including sketching at the Paris slaughterhouse and dressing like a man. Rosa spent her life in France, but was associated with the American West as a collector of figures and animals. She had a set of prints by George Catlin. When Buffalo Bill Cody visited Paris in 1889, she was a frequent visitor to his Wild West Show and made numerous sketches of persons and animals in the show. She also did a full-length portrait of Cody, and into her later years, continued to do paintings of the American West. She received a gold medal in 1855 at the Exposition Universelle in Paris, a ribbon in 1865 of the Chevalier de la Legion d'Honneur from Empress Eugenie, and honorary membership in the Royal Academy of Watercolorists of London in 1885.
