Recommended by Sam (Owner & Director):
"Once again Daumier captures a key moment, which many of us have experienced as restaurant patrons when we realize that we do not have the funds to pay for our meal. The artist's lithographic crayon drawing, one of so many he contributed to Le Charivari and La Caricature, is so expressive. His social awareness and commentary on political figures, the legal profession (Les Gens de Justice), the abuse of women (Les Bas Bleu series) and so many other social conventions of 19th century France; represent a powerful legacy that is still relevant today."
