Reviews

**STARRED REVIEW**
"An elegant, insightful portrait of an artist worth knowing."--Kirkus Reviews
"High-definition, full-page reproductions of her artwork, as well as supporting historical information about the era in which Bonheur lived, make this an accessible portrait of the artist."--School Library Journal
"Macdonald pares Rosa's biography down to accessible chapters, highlighting such interest-sparking details as the artist's need for documented permission to dress as a man to attend horse fairs and the mid-century portrait dolls modeled after her that became something of a rage. Plentiful, generously scaled reproductions of Bonheur's work and that of several contemporaries will lure in browsers, and discussion of the Impressionist movement that drove Realism from the field adds important context."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"A historically rich chronicle of artist Rosa Bonheur's life."--Publishers Weekly
**STARRED REVIEW**
"Take note of this biography of an extraordinary painter"--School Library Connection
