The Caricature of Honoré Daumier



Temporary Exhibitions, Harrington Gallery


One of the most witty and adept caricaturists of all time, Honoré Daumier created a body of social and political cartoons that continues to resonate today. The Hood Museum of Art’s collection offers a rich overview of Daumier’s career as a graphic artist, presenting a picture of France at a time in the mid-nineteenth century when cultural and societal changes were ushering in a new era of modernity.

Generously funded by the Frank L. Harrington 1924 Exhibition Fund.
