Explanation and Analysis of Famous Paintings
Here's a masterpiece that comes alive with Masterpiece Cards' art history background.
In order to gain admission to the horse market to sketch this subject, Rosa Bonheur, the creator of Horse Fair (left), had to disguise herself as a man.

Horse Fair, Rosa Bonheur. Oil on canvas, 1853 - 1855. 8' x 17' (approx.). Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
