Provenance M.R. Schweitzer Gallery, New York, as Horses and Grooms Sale: Sotheby's, New York, May 21, 1987, lot 63 Acquired at the above sale by A. Alfred Taubman Rosa Bonheur remains today among the most well-known woman artists of the nineteenth century. Her skill was apparent from an early age, and fostered by her father, also an artist, who trained Bonheur and her sibling in the tradition of a Renaissance workshop. She was a precocious talent with an affinity for portraying animals, and she demonstrated uncommon devotion to her craft in spite of strict gender codes (even going so far as to dress as a man to gain entrance to traditionally male spaces). After considerable success at the Paris Salon of 1848, she was awarded a coveted state commission to paint Plowing in the Nivernais (1849, Musée d’’’’Orsay, Paris), a critically-acclaimed submission to the 1849 Salon. Her career soared and she was showered with honors, including that of Officer de la Légion d’’’’Honneur, the premiere order of France, which no woman before had ever received. Long fascinated with horses, in 1851 Bonheur began to visit the horse market at Boulevard de l’’’’Hôpital near the Asylum of la Salpêtre. She had received a copy of M. Richard’’’’s Etude de Cheval in 1844 and ever since was focused on perfecting her drawing of the equine form. As she watched the handlers jogging their horses through the market, Bonheur thought their movements followed those of the Parthenon’’’’s frieze (Dore Ashton, Rosa Bonheur, A Life and a Legend, New York, 1981, p. 82). Such an impression is evocatively recorded in the present work with its parade of horses on display for appraising onlookers. The form of each animal is varied, recording her observations and boasting of her brilliant technique. As she explained, “my idea was not to imitate, but to interpret. In this spirit I made innumerable compositions and studies” (as quoted in Ashton, p. 82). While it stands alone as a realized composition, the present work was most probably an early iteration or conceptual study for Bonheur’’’’s most famous painting, The Horse Fair (1853, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York) and its versions in watercolors including the largest which sold in these rooms on April 18, 2007, lot 114 for $480,000. The influence of Eugène Delacroix and Théodore Géricault was crucial to the creation of The Horse Fair and the artists’’’’ impact on Bonheur is evident both in the subject and technique of Le Marche aux Chevaux.

Other WORKS AT AUCTION
Description:
Rosa Bonheur (French, 1822-1899) A Grazing Sheep Initialed and dated "RB 91" l.l. Oil on canvas, 8 3/8 x 11 1/2 in. (21.2 x 29.0 cm), framed. Condition: Canvas trimmed and laid on paperboard support, surface creases, craquelure, surface grime. N.B. Two labels, apparently clipped from a publication, are affixed to the reverse of the paperboard support, one reading "ROSA BONHEUR" and the other "Vente Rosa Bonheur 1900." This work may correspond to No. 490 in the catalog for the sale of the Rosa Bonheur estate, "Mouton à tête noire de profil à droit," a work on canvas, for which the dimensions correspond to within a centimeter. However the entry does not mention any initials or date on the work, and the description itself is not sufficiently specific to be certain.
