Honoré Daumier




Honoré-Victorin Daumier (French: [ɔnɔʁe domje]; February 26, 1808 – February 10, 1879) was a French printmakercaricaturist, painter, and sculptor, whose many works offer commentary on social and political life in France from the Revolution of 1830 to the fall of the second Napoleonic Empire in 1870. He was a republican democrat who attacked the upper bourgeoisie, the monarchy, and the established church. Daumier produced more than 500 paintings, 4000 lithographs, 1000 wood engravings, 1000 drawings and 100 sculptures. A prolific draughtsman, he was perhaps best known for his caricatures of political figures and satires on the behavior of his countrymen, although posthumously the value of his painting has also been recognized.
