Description
Honoré Daumier (1808 - 1879) - Les Gens de Justice
Lithograph - Plate signed - Onbekend

Delicate lithograph in perfect condition.
Professionally framed.

Explanation of the scene of three lawyers and a woman:
" Quel dommage que cette charmante femme ne m'ait pas chargé de defenre sa cause..."

From the famous series of 39 plates for the first published in 'Le Charivari'.

The "Michelangelo van karikatuur", Honoré Daumier famously spotted France's bourgeoisie and legal system, and masterfully exposed the misery of the masses through lithography. Grotesque caricatures of government officials made him with the public.
