About

Rallying against the restrictions that were placed on women at the time, Rosa Bonheur set her own agenda and made history.  
 
Join Gallery Educator Fiona Alderton to learn about Rosa's life and art and hear the story behind 'The Horse Fair', the first painting by a woman artist to be acquired by the National Gallery.    

After the talk, Fiona will be happy to answer your questions in a live Q&A
