The Museum of Art and History of Saint-Denis presents an exhibition on the painter and caricaturist Honoré Daumier (1808-1879).Late painter and admired sculptor of Rodin, Honoré Daumier was a great draftsman and a talented lithographer. With his prolific work that is characterized by this detached and empathic way of describing reality, he joins forces with Gustave Courbet and Jean-François Millet among the fathers of the realism - cultural movement, heir of positivism, who developed in France around 1840.
In a key era like the nineteenth century, marked by nationalist demands and the development of the bourgeois and then working class, it is above all a poetic portrait of modernity that Daumier delivers us.
Between controversy and irony, the artist illustrates the difficult life of the most destitute; he comments on the development of town planning and means of transport, particularly in Paris, the changing arts system and the birth of European nations.
The exhibition shows the work of Daumier as an ideaer, press cartoonist, who, like those of today, reacts to the news - a news that strangely appears not so different from ours ...
