A tour in French of the exhibition Honoré Daumier: Mirror to the World with Blandine Massiet du Biest.

Honoré Daumier was a French printmaker, caricaturist, painter, and sculptor, whose many works offer commentary on social and political life in France in the 19th century.

Daumier produced over 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.

If the tour has sparked your interest for political cartoons, have a look at the Dessins en liberté exhibition !

Mezzanine level and level 2
