Rosa Bonheur (16 March 1822 - 25 May 1899), French artist, painter and sculptor, authentic, autographed manuscript letter (LS). This three page letter measures approximately 4" x 7" in size and is dated January 16, 1880. 

This letter is accompanied by a fully typed English translation. It is regarding a Miss Micas and the theater. 

Bonheur is the most famous female artist of the first three quarters of the 19th century. Radical in her personal life, she was politically and artistically conservative. She was the first woman to receive a cross of the Legion of Honor in France, bestowed on her by Empress Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, in June 1865. The empress wanted to show, that "genius has no sex."

This letter is crisply signed at the conclusion by Bonheur. It is in good to very good condition, with overall light toning not affecting the signature. The letter contains some scattered creases, small tears and expected intersecting folds.
