Honoré Daumier Lithograph Collections and Corrupt Lawyers

The Librarians' Index to the Internet features 2 items this week about 19th century French artist Honoré Daumier, who gained notoriety for his often acerbic caricatures of the monarchy, politicians, and the French middle class. He is especially well-known for his Les gens de justice collection attacking the corrupt practices of lawyers of his time.

The 2 sites are:
  • Honoré Daumier and His Lithographic Work
    This site is maintained by 2 Swiss-based collectors and includes a detailed biography, a list of more than 700 Daumier exhibitions, a list of significant collections, and the "Daumier Register", a "digital work catalogue giving detailed information and at least one photograph for each of the 4,000 Daumier lithographs."
  • Honoré Daumier Lithographs: Brandeis University Collections
    The site features a Daumier timeline, a slide show of Daumier lithographs, a link to a database with images of thousands of Daumier lithographs, and a bibliography. The University owns one of the major Daumier collections in North America.
