Rosa Bonheurs
200th Birthday

Today’s Doodle celebrates the life of Nigerian educator, ceramicist, glassworker, and potter Ladi Kwali, 

who helped introduce the international community to the beauty of Nigerian art through intricately decorated earthenware designs.

On this day in 2017, an exhibition of Ladi Kwali’s work at the Skoto Gallery in New York opened

Ladi Dosei Kwali was born around 1925 to a family of potters in Kwali, Abuja, Nigeria.

Bonheur's reputation as an animal painter and sculptor grew into the 1840s, with many of her works exhibited at the prestigious Paris Salon from 1841 to 1853.
