DESCRIPTION

Details

The French text below the image translates to : Victor Hugo, in a discourse of three points, shows the worthlessness of military glory and proves by example that the crown of laurels can be advantageously replaced by the rosary! That gives him the advantage of creating a new affect of the forehead. Text on the reverse as issued. Original lithograph by Honore Daumier published in Paris in 1849. Initialled 'HD' in the image. From his series titled Souvenirs Du Congres de La Paix. 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. One small spot in the image and closely cut to title at top of the sheet.
