Daumier: Visions of Paris
'An excellent show of works by an artist whose achievements are still not fully recognised' - The FT
Honoré Daumier (1808-1879) is perhaps best known for his political and social caricatures, precise and witty observations of life in nineteenth-century France. This authoritative study provides a long-overdue assessment of his entire oeuvre, bringing together his paintings, sculptures, watercolours, drawings and lithographs, all of which were greatly admired in his lifetime.
Lavishly illustrated with works from throughout Daumier's career, including the satirical lithographs that made his name, this companion book to an exhibition at the Royal Academy in 2013 also focuses on his lesser-known innovative paintings and drawings such as his images of the laundresses and street entertainers living in his neighbourhood.
