HonorĂŠ Daumier Caricatures from the Robert Macaire series

HonorĂŠ Daumier (1808 - 1879) was a French painter and sculptor but is now noted as the pre-eminent caricaturist of the 19th century. In the late 1820s he learnt the fairly new process of lithography and in 1830 contributed political cartoons to the republican, anti-government weekly Caricature. Daumier was an ardent republican and in 1832 was imprisoned for representing Louis-Philippe as Gargantua swallowing bags of gold extorted from the people. Political satire was suppressed in France in 1835 and in consequence Daumier turned to satire of social life in the daily Le Charivari; the first newspaper to be illustrated with lithographs. In Le Charivari Daumier depicted a series of humorous scenes which gave a vivid and critical view of France's social classes in transition. Amongst these series was one satirizing businessmen personified in the character of Robert Macaire, an unscrupulous, flattering swindler and profiteer. The character of Robert Macaire had first appeared in 1823 in a now largely forgotten melodrama. Originally 100 lithographs of Robert Macaire appeared in Le Charivari between August 1836 and November 1838 followed by a second series between October 1840 and September 1842.
