Exhibition Website

Oct 29 2016 - Apr 23 2017

Daumier’s Political and Social Satire explores work exclusively from the DMA’s collection by Honoré Daumier (1808–1879), a French artist known for his caricatures lampooning politics and society in 19th-century France. The installation presents thirteen works that demonstrate Daumier’s satirical eye, serving collectively as historical documents that reflect the amusements, fashion, demeanor, and politics of 19th-century Parisian life.
