Honore Daumier Images
No other artist reaches fluently in lithographic form, no other artist has devoted themselves so wholeheartedly in lithography to deal with the major issues of the day.
Explored the lithography medium to its full potential.

Believes in the goodness of people, as compared to Goya who paints and believes the evil twisted of people.
Great realist, and he makes the situation quite real. With the on-the-spot eye of a reporter, he thrusts us into the scene dramatizing the subject.
Nothing he loved more than thales of characters of heroes from the past.
Pygmalion, from Storeis of Ancient TIme, Charivari
Greatest artist of chiaroscuro.
Expressiveness of drawing sets him apart from his contemporaries.
