The below artworks are the most important by Rosa Bonheur - that both overview the major creative periods, and highlight the greatest achievements by the artist. This large oil painting, commissioned and exhibited in by the French government, was Bonheur's first early success.

She primarily depicted animal subjects and here twelve oxen peacefully plough the land in preparation for future planting.

Her focus on the land, the animals and the landscape tell a respectful story of timeless peasant life, work, and tradition. The humble sense of realism that emanates from the canvas recalls that work of Camille Corot and Gustave Two strong muscled males plow in a building website.

Similar to the Realists, Bonheur presents man and nature working seamlessly together to yield harvest from the land. Bonheur's masterful use of a series of diagonals leads the viewer into and around the sunlit composition. The solid, straight edge of the plowed field recedes from foreground to Two strong muscled males plow in a building website ground.

The artist's use of scale and perspective is epic and impressive, and in this sense also recalls the canvases of the Romantics. The two groups of six gleaming Charolais glisten in impressive muscular stride pleasing the eye in their subtle variations of color. The softness, elegance, and muteness of palette also recalls the calm wistful landscapes of earlier Dutch masters, with whose work Bonheur was also very familiar. The artist comments at the time, "I became an animal painter because I loved to move among animals.

I would simply study an animal and draw it in the position it took, and when it changed to another position I would draw that. Bonheur's most famous painting is monumental: She dedicated herself to the study of draft horses at the dusty, wild horse market in Paris twice a week between and where she made endless sketches, some simple line drawings and others in great detail. Her ability to capture the raw power, beauty and strength of the untamed animals in motion is superbly displayed in this dramatic scene.

The masterful handling of the motion and swirl of dark and light surrounding the pounding, unruly beasts controlled by calm, masterful handlers pulls the viewer into the energy and action of the scene.
