Details

The French text below the image translates to : What a shame this lovely little lady didn't ask me to present her case in Court... I would love to plead that her husband is a rogue... Folds as issued, text on the reverse. Original lithograph by Honore Daumier published in Paris in 1846. Initialled 'HD' in the image. From his series on French lawyers titled Les Gens De Justice. Honore Daumier (1808-1879), was a French printmaker, caricaturist, painter, and sculptor, whose many works offer commentary on social and political life in France in the 19th century. A prolific and reknown draftsman who produced over 4000 lithographs, he was perhaps best known for his caricatures of political figures and satires on the behaviour of his countrymen. Inscription on the reverse which shows through at the very bottom of sheet, well away from the image area.
