Honore Daumier: The Print Lover

The Print Lover: Honore Daumier

The Print Lover Honore Daumier shows a potential member of his target market examining prints, a medium for which Daumier was famous. Painted loosely with rasping technique, the image captures an essence rather than a realistic likeness.

This was painted in 1860 at a time when Daumier was well renowned for his cartoons, paintings, sculptures and lithographs in France.

Honore Daumier’s The Print Lover can be found in the Philadelphia Museum of Art
