Ellas VI: Bego Antón with Rosa Bonheur

Chamois Lying Down, c.1890–1899

Antón takes us to the crystalline eye of Bonheur’s ibex, towards that eye that makes an animal’s gaze human, and in it she finds the reason for talking to us about how references work for her and her personal relationship with the animal world.
