Honoré Daumier


French artist, lithographer, caricaturist and painter who was famed for his biting satire. He was imprisoned once for six months in 1832 after drawing a cartoon that mocked King Louis Philippe. Daumier produced about 4,000 lithographs and some 200 paintings. He attempted to paint but lacking a formal artistic education, accepted his career of daily drawing.

Born the son of a struggling poet whose day jobs were glazier and picture framer, Daumier missed out on a traditional art education. At 19 he apprenticed for a few months with a lithographer. Shortly after he caught on as a caricaturist and courtroom artists with two magazines.

His great-great-grandsons still embellish daily editorial pages and the Daumier estate still holds the patent on "Jules Feiffer."

He did not receive major recognition until after his death in Valmondois, France on 11 February 1879.
