"Célébrée dans le monde entier comme la plus grande peintre animalière de son temps, Rosa Bonheur (1822-1899) fut la première artiste à recevoir la croix de la Légion d'honneur grâce à l'impératrice Eugénie, et la première femme à recevoir la rosette grâce au président de la République, Sadi Carnot. Dans un siècle qui considérait les femmes comme des mineures ou des incapables en Droit et en capacités, les assujettissant à un père, un frère ou un mari, leur interdisant l'accès au savoir et à toutes formes de pouvoir, y compris celui de gagner décemment leur vie, Rosa Bonheur se jura de relever la femme . Composée à partir de journaux, de correspondances inédites, de témoignages laissés par les proches de Rosa Bonheur, cette biographie est la première à faire entendre au plus près la voix de l'artiste avec sa véritable personnalité, jusqu'ici souvent masquée par des témoignages approximatifs."

"Ceci est mon testament" by Rosa Bonheur( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Et j'ai pensé que maintenant j'avais le droit de vivre pour moi et de disposer à mon gré de mon bien personnel, n'ayant eu ni enfants, ni tendresse pour le sexe fort, si ce n'est une franche et bonne amitié pour ceux qui avaient toute mon estime. Artiste de renommée internationale, Rosa Bonheur décide au soir de sa vie de léguer la totalité de ses biens à sa "soeur de la palette", Anna-Elizabeth Klumpke. Le château de By et son parc, "compris le petit potager", les titres de rente, l'ensemble des oeuvres en ses ateliers, tout doit revenir à Anna. Telle est la volonté de Rosa, pour qui "la parfaite amitié" prime sur les liens du sang? et sur les prétentions de sa famille à l'héritage. Elle s'en explique magnifiquement dans la lettre ajoutée à son testament, qui affirme son droit "de tester en faveur d'une compagne artiste". Et pose ainsi, écrit Suzette Robichon dans l'avant-propos, "un acte à l'aune de l'audace et de la liberté dont elle fit preuve toute sa vie". Le Testament et la Lettre-Testament de Rosa Bonheur s'accompagnent ici d'un article paru dans La Fronde sur ses obsèques, et d'une chronologie la situant dans son époque la Restauration et le Second Empire, la guerre franco-prussienne et la Commune, le saint-simonisme et l'émergence du féminisme."--Page 4 of cover
