The Horse Fair (1853-1855) by lesbian artist Rosa Bonheur. She visited a horse market twice a week for two years dressed as a man to make sketches. In 1864 she became the first woman to receive the Legion of Honor, France’s highest award, but Napoleon III wouldn’t present it because Bonheur was a woman, and so it was given to her privately by the Empress Eugénie.
