"An important work. . . . This catalog will become a benchmark in all research concerning Daumier.."

Book Description
Honore-Victorin Daumier (1808-79) was loved and loathed for his biting satires of contemporary life and human malice. This is the catalogue for the first retrospective of his work since 1878 and pulls together works on similar subjects for the first time. Daumier was very much an artists' artist, collected by artists like Corot, Degas, and Gauguin and inspiration to artists like Picasso. Daumier's art gave voice to universal subjects and themes by depicting a France struggling with its unfolding history. It is a well-known irony that Daumier is collected widely among lawyers, practitioners of a profession that he scorned. This book is lavishly produced, with almost...

Daumier and Exoticism: Satirizing the French and the Foreign (Hermeneutics of Art Series), Vol. 11
Elizabeth C. Childs
0820469459
January 2004
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Best known as a satirist of Parisian politics and daily life, Honoré Daumier (1808–1879) was a prolific caricaturist. This book is the first to examine the role of exoticism in his art, and to offer a detailed history of the journal Le Charivari in which the lithographs appeared. These satires of China, Haiti, the United States, Africa, and the Middle East not only target the theater of international politics, but also draw on a broad range of physical stereotypes supported by contemporary ideas about race and cultural difference. In an art of comic inversion, Daumier used the exotic to expose the foibles and pretensions of the Parisian bourgeoisie. A pacifist and a Republican, Daumier also satirized the non-European world in order to covertly attack the imperialism of Napoléon III in an age of press...

Book Description
A painter, sculptor, and printmaker, Honoré Daumier (1808-1879) was one of the most prolific and important artists of nineteenth-century France. He played a leading role in shaping the new realism brought to the portrayal of everyday life, but he is now best known for the thousands of caricatures he published in magazines and newspapers such as Le Charivari, a daily with satirical articles and a wide circulation. Musical Notes by Honoré Daumier, which accompanied an exhibition of prints from the Collection of Egon and Belle Gartenberg, focuses on Daumier's vivid records of the musical life of Paris. Although not himself a musician, Daumier had a keen interest in the amateur practice of the art as well as in grand opera and the celebrated performers and composers of his day. Hector Berlioz, Franz Liszt,...

Arts Review
"A marvelous and compelling book, which deserves to be read with care by all concerned with art, politics, and society."

Book Description
When this book and its companion volume, Image of the People, appeared in 1973, they were taken as a challenge to the way art was usually written about. "This book," said the Times, "is a product of that school of art history whose history is as well read as its art, and whilst it covers only a small area of time and place, Clark's approach and style are such that it throws up enough ideas and pleasures to illuminate far beyond its rather special circumstances. It is suffused with wit and pathetic irony."
T. J. Clark's subject is painting and printmaking in the years following the 1848 Revolution in France, "a time", he...

From the New England Journal of Medicine, October 16, 2003
The popular circus showman P.T. Barnum once warned that "humbug" was everywhere in the medical profession. In Quack, Quack, Quack, William Helfand, a historian of pharmacy, proves Barnum right. A chronicle of quackery in picture and prose, Helfand's book examines the depths of medical chicanery in Western culture over the past 400 years. "Quacks have been with us forever," explains Helfand. Never "static," quackery has "modified its offering to adjust to new therapeutic discoveries and new means of communication," as well as "to almost any prevailing political and regulatory system." Helfand demonstrates the adaptability of quackery with 183 fascinating images of promotional material, along with the popular and professional reactions they inspired. Mined from various archives...
