French 19th century social caricature by Honore Daumier.


Original lithograph by Honore Daumier published in Paris in 1844. Initialled 'HD' in the image. From a series titled 'Les Beaux Jours de la Vie' which was published in the French magazine 'Le Charivari'. The text beneath the image reads 'Un Diner Chez Very -Enfin ! je viens donc de diner en garcon !...oui ! mais ma femme m'a confie un louis et il me reste....soixante centimes !' (A Dinner at Very's - So what! I am having dinner by myself today... alright! But my wife gave me one Louis d'or and I still have... 60 centimes left.) 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. Sheet trimmed but not affecting image or title etc. Folds as issued, text on the reverse as issued. Some off-setting.
