ROYAL ACADEMY OF ARTS – LONDON, UK
Daumier (1808-1879): Visions of Paris will be the first major exhibition of Honoré Daumier, the prolific artist and social commentator, to be held in Britain for over fifty years.
Admired by the avant-garde circles of 19th century France and described by Baudelaire as one of the most important men ‘in the whole of modern art,’ the exhibition will explore Daumier’s legacy through 130 works displayed chronologically and spanning the breadth and variety of his often experimental artistic output.
Ann Dumas, Curator at the Royal Academy says, “Although the importance of Daumier’s place in the development of 19th century French painting is well-known to scholars, we hope that the Royal Academy’s exhibition will bring a wider understanding of his profoundly empathetic and daring works into the public sphere.”
