Born in Marseille in 1808, Honoré Daumier became one of France’s most well known printmakers and caricaturists, though he was also a painter and sculptor. Daumier is particularly known for his prolific work as a lithographer, which often caricatured the bourgeois society of Paris. In this exhibition, featured in three installments, Daumier’s unique view of nineteenth-century Paris is illustrated through a selection of the artist’s lithographs.
