Honoré Daumier : Les célébrités du juste milieu (1832-1835)

Musée d'Orsay. Until 28 août 2005.

In 1832, Charles Philippon, the founder of the satirical newspapers "the Caricature" and the "Charivari", request to Honore Daumier (1808-1879) famous caricaturist in his time, to carry out forty busts representing the political personalities of the time. Trente-six of these raw ground busts painted with oil are currently gathered with the Museum of Orsay.  For the majority of them appointed, these characters are known under the name of "Célébrités du Juste Milieu".  The cruel and acid talent of Daumier represents them without concession, recalling us how much the caricaturist was a fine observer. These fragile sculptures were carefully restored for the event thanks to Foundation BNP Paribas and providential photographs taken in 1861 by the Philippon son.  The exposure juxtaposes the carved busts but also the satirical lithographies which they inspired.  It is completed by an explanation of the methods of restoration, around the Persil bust, one of the large enemies of the freedom of the press after the Monarchy of July.
