Summary

In many ways Honore Daumier is the father of contemporary satire, and certainly his influence on the development of caricature was profound -- so much so that it is still possible to detect overtones of his work in today's satirical and anthropomorphic cartoons. For an artist who rose to prominence in the early part of the nineteenth century, his work still looks remarkably fresh at the beginning of the twenty-first.

Daumier's fame and notoriety arose from the satirical portraits of political figures that he drew for French newspapers and magazines during the 1830s. But his paintings were equally powerful -- that of Don Quixote is a tragi-comic masterpiece -- and no less influential.

This definitive book presents Daumier's drawings, paintings, sculptures and lithographs, along with an insightful text by the distinguished French art historian Pierre Cabanne, and a comprehensive collection of notes, details and important background research.
