Catalogue Note

A precocious talent from a young age, Rosa Bonheur began copying the masters in the Louvre at the age of 14 and she first exhibited at the Salon in 1841, at only 19. Her meticulous draughtsmanship and deep-felt affection for the animals she portrayed made her one of the most celebrated and successful animaliers of the nineteenth century. 

By 1860, Bonheur left Paris for a quieter life at her Château de By, on the outskirts of the Forest of Fontainebleau. As evidenced by the noble stag of the present work, Bonheur had clearly absorbed the influence of British masters such as Edwin Landseer, whose works she would have seen while on tour with The Horse Fair in the mid-1850s.
