The Uprising: Honoré Daumier

Honoré Daumier: The Uprising

The Uprising has Honoré Daumier recounting the deprivation of the Parisian poor in 1848, a year when attempted revolution was prevalent in many European nations, including Italian states, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Switzerland as well as Belgium, Ireland, and Spain. He paints in a realist style depicting the raw emotion of the center character.

Daumier’s paintings of working-class life were a great inspiration to Edgar Degar who collected over 2,000 of his works during his lifetime.
