Companion of Rosa Bonheur
Talks ofHer Work and of
Plans for Visit Here
By 'MIRIAM STACKER.
A truly wonderful member of a tal-;'
rnted family is Miss Anna'Klumpke;
native daughter of' the Golden West
distlirguished in art "and "letters be;
yond the margin which few women
strive to Teach atid fewer still do
reach. ' ;
,;Aliss Klumpke arrived here yester
day on the Wilhelmina. It is herj
first visit to Honolulu and within the
short space of a few hours she haa
been In two automobiles visitins
places -of interest, was interviewed
by; a representative of the Star-Bui
letir. caught a glimpse of the night
blooming cereus and admired Torrey's
portrait of Judge Dole.
Possessed of rare talent as a paint
er of ort raits and as the companion
and friend of the late Rosa Uotiheur,
and her biographer as well, this little
woman, who speaks French with the:
true accent of the Parlsienne.' though'
American born, is one of the most
distinguished woman of the French
capital. A guest at every reception
given by the nobilky. if that teruj
i to be used in speaking of the peo
pie of a Republic, with entre to every
a!nh and exhibition, and the holder
of; the Temple medal, received in
1N8!. she is almost without a peer in
the world of art. And Honolulu has
her for a visitor, and Prof, and Mrs.
ingalls as their guest.
Completes Bonneur Biography.
To Miss Klumpke the greatest
achievement of her life is the com
pletion of the biography of the great
woman painter. Rosa Bonheur, writ
ten at the request of Miss Bonheur
and as a legacy Miss Klumpke has
a; number of canvases the artist
left behind and many valuable souvc-.
nirs. Of the paintings, she has ten
of moderate sire which she will ex
hibit during her short stay. The
hook. "Rosa Bonheur. Sa Vie Son
Oeuvre." occupied he attention of
Ujo painter-author for six years. '
"When I had finished the manu
script there' tame the selection of the
Illustrations, of which there are three
hundred, and the work was finally
printed by Geofge Petit, the famous
printer of France. Among the illus
trations is. of course. 'The Horse
Fair,' because it is one of the best
known of her great pictures. But
Miss Bonheur ; would not consent io
have this canvas referred to as hei
greatest work; she had another which
ghe considered had greater vaim
from;,an a'rUslic "'Sense. The bwhei of
n mi inmiiii in iii
the 'Horse Fair,' M. Campard, was a
dear friend of Miss Bonheur. and ic
was with him we were photographed
on an occasion when we had " our
medals with us.
"Miss Bonheur is an example of
the height the woman of ability-may
attain; thrbngh application. i No wo
man artist - cmnlaiided the attention
she,;did thronghdut ' the world where
she might be personally known or
through notices which the press
showered upon her. My relations
with her were ' of the most intimate
character and she looked upon me. 1
know, with the affection which comes
from mother to daughter. Site was
a part of my life: as much, I believe,
as I was a part of hers, so it was
natural that at. the end she shouid
ask mc to tell the world of 1ier life
and her works. I am prouder" of my
accomplishment in this respect than
ot the medals I have received as a
testimonial of my work as an artist.
That' work is a gift, originally and
amplified through study and applica
tibn; my position as biographer of
the greatest wontan painter the world
ever Ttnew came to me as a" request
from one who was next to mother in
my affections and it was my pleasure
to be able to comply."
Miss Klumpke has painted many
portraits In Boston of the distin
guished citizens of that city and of
others throughout New England. She
has the distinction enjoyed by few
worren artists. "E ont de june." or.
in other words, of exhibiting or.o
painting in the saloon without disctis
?ion by the committee. This is her's
by right of the bronze medal award
ed for an exhibited portrait in the
Exhibition I'niversalle. which is
equal to the third medal. She exhib
ited in Philadelphia in 18S1 and was
winner of the famous Temple medal
for her subject "Women in the Wash
Hotise." which now hangs in the
Philadelphia Museum of Art.
Has Ten Bonheurs Here.
".lust where I will hold an exhibi
tion in Honolulu has not been de
cided." said Miss Klumpke. "I hae
five ot my own paintings and ten
originals by Rosa Bonheur. one of
them. lu the Meadow.' beine a rare
gem. 1 have an unfinished canvas oi
Mrs. de Bretteville in San Francisco
which 1 shall finish when I return
end should I receive any commissions
here I will return and paint them.
Just now. yon will understand. I am
on vacation and will not do much
hard work. 1 love to talk of my book
because 1 think il a great thinn that
; daughter of the (Johlen W't si ho.,iu
be calk't! U:ii io put before the
world the story of the life of a for
eigner. And 1 want to say that the
influence of America on the advance
of women in all lines, hoth profes
sionally and in business has its ef
fect in the old world.
As to Suffrage.
"Am I a believer in w6man suf
frage? Yes and no. It depends up
on, the length you would have' to go.
I am opposed to women voting for
State offices or for National ones. If
her vote would make the schools bet
ter; if it would advance the cause of
women, make her better in this worid
and if her vote would be in the in
terest of the purity of the ballot as
applied to county affairs, I believe
I could be won over. I am hot, how
ever, a suffragette in the fullest sense
of the term as applied in London, for
I believe it is not the'mission of wo
men to attack officials of govern
ment and break windows. The free
dom of women and equal rights can
come through more peaceable
"Miss Bonheur was of the opinion
that women shquld not band them
selves together for any purpose in
order to be independent of men and
With much of my life spent with her
it is natnral that I should feel the
influence of her thoughts. Kvery
woman , has a career if she will but
set out to make it and it is attain
able whether she appear at the polls
or attends strictly to her affairs.
There is much in the world for , wo
man to do. This is being shown in
the ranks of scientists and in busi
ness every day. Perhaps the efforts
of the more aggressive suffragettes
has given woman an inkling of what
may be accomplished; she has been
shown the road and quickly, in this
generation, takes it."
Miss Klumpke is one of four daugh
ters who have achieved fame, one as
a musician, another as an astronomer
and still another as a physician. She
has brought among her an works to
