Honoré Daumier

Honoré Daumier, (26. February 1808 Marseille - 10. February 1879 Valmondois), was a sarcastic caricaturist with an oevre of 4000 lithographs, published in "La Caricature" and in "Le Charivari". Starting in 1832 he lashed out at at the deplorable state of affairs among the authorities of justice and branded the court of Louis Philippe and the king himself with his biting mockery. After having been tried and and punished with six months of imprisonment in 1832 for lèse-majesté, Daumier turned to make fun of the petit bourgeois who offered aims for affable ridicule galore. Daumier created his drawings with a sharp mind and a benign artit's hand, pointing at political and social injustices, leading the art of lithography to excellence and promoting the genre of caricature to an alltime summit.

The series of "table-turning" was published in "Le Charivari" in the 1850ies under the serial name of "La Fluidomanie". The Charivari was published in newspaper style, i.e. had text and/or pictures an both sides of the paper. Occasionally the printing from the back side shows in front. Connoisseurs are usually not disturbed by this fact. There is general toning on most of the prints, some have little remarkable centerfolds. The prints themselves are clean and in good condition. They are all signed on the stone "HD" for Honoré Daumier. The "DL"-number is from the oevre-register. Measurements pertain to image only.

Delteil XX, Nr. 65

The famous satirist Honoré Daumier is well known for his acrimonious sense of humor. The story behind this masterpiece of Daumier's early work: Daumier has Georges Mouton de Lobau (1770-1838), General and Marshall of France, marching in a cortege in a posture and conduct of "Here I come!" His arrival announced by a drummer and followed by subordinates carrying the insignia of the apothecary guild. Mouton was a member of the French Chamber of Deputies since 1828. He played an important role within the liberal opposition. King Louis-Philippe appointed him to be the Commanding General of the National Guard. Mouton became famous for having ordered the fire department of Paris to use their water hoses to disperse the outraged masses protesting the government action on Place Vendôme on May 12, 1831. On June 27, 1833 the King appointed him Marshall and Pair de France in return for this invention to control rebellious subjects.

Daumier took this happening and Mouton's "invention" for a good reason to allude to the use of fire hoses by drawing Prince Lancelot de Tricanule with the enema (clyster) syringe being carried in the cortege.

Light general age toning. Hardly visible light spots from mounting in the two upper corners. Splendid original hand coloring.

Text:

"Oui Monsieur ... dévoué par état... et par sentiment à la philantropie la plus pure, je n'ai reculé devant aucunes veilles ni aucunes cornues pour arriver à trouver une pâte encore plus Regnauld que tout ce qui s'est fait jusqu'à ce jour... je suis enfin arrivé au but de mes rêves... c'est à dire à la fusion du cloporte au limaçon... comme avant tout je ne veux que le soulagement de l'humanité souffrante et toussante, malgré le haut prix des matières premières je ne vends la boîte que cinq francs... un demi-boîte a suffi pour guérir Mr. Ducantal père!.."

Text Translation from the French language:

Yes Monsieur, fully dedicated by the State and my philanthropic destiny, I did not hesitate to spend my nights and overcame all obstructions, simply to produce a salve more Regnault (an ointment produced by Véron) than anything known today. I have finally realized my dreams... the fusion of woodlice and slugs..... since my only aim is to liberate our coughing and suffering humanity of its pain, I offer the box for only five francs..... half a box was enough to cure the father of Mr. Ducantal!
