Honoré Daumier (1808-1879)

Artist of 16 portraits
Honore Daumier was a prolific French caricaturist, painter and sculptor especially renowned for his cartoons and drawings satirising nineteenth-century French politics and society. His paintings, though hardly known during his lifetime, helped introduce techniques of Impressionism into modern art. He is, however, best remembered for his lithographs, particularly those published by La Caricature and Le Charivari from the early 1830s onwards. Daumier's working life was divided into two parts: from 1830 to 1847 he was a lithographer, cartoonist, and sculptor; and, beginning in 1848 and lasting until 1871, he was an Impressionist painter whose art was reflected in the lithographs he continued to produce.
