Watercolor after The Horse Fair by Rosa Bonheur signed B. Cohen - late 19th/early 20th Century, USA

Beautifully rendered watercolor painting signed on the lower right B. Cohen after R. Bonheur. The painting that inspired this piece is Rosa Bonheur's 1855 masterpiece and most famous work The Horse Fair (now in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art collection). It depicts a horse auction in Paris. Rosa Bonheur was granted special permission from the police to dress as a man to avoid attention while painting this scene as it happened. The Horse Fair won her fame and recognition including that of Queen Victoria which led to Bonheur visiting the Scottish Highlands where she completed sketches for later works. She was the first woman to receive France's Legion d'Honneur Medal and the most famous woman painter of the 19th Century. Benjamin Cohen (born 1869) was an American painter known for his Chester County, Pennsylvania landscapes. In very good used condition with patina wear and imperfections to frame as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.
