Who is Rosa Bonheur?
While driving in North Laguna on Rosa Bonheur Street, did you ever wonder who she is? She is a French animalière (animal painter), realist artist, and sculptor, considered to have been the most famous female painter of the nineteenth century. Now that I know who she is, I'm wondering why Laguna Beach has a street named after her. Let me get back to you on that one.
