Wallraf-Richartz-Museum & Fondation Corboud

The brilliant painter, draughtsman and lithographer Honoré Daumier (1808-1879) became famous, particularly in France, for his sharp-witted caricatures in major daily newspapers and magazines. In a fine, small special exhibition, the Wallraf shows how Daumier repeatedly focussed his gaze on people in the museum. Artists, critics and the public are at the centre of his unsparing observations, as the selected caricatures by Daumier impressively and amusingly demonstrate. The graphic exhibition accompanies "A Museum of Museums" and takes a closer look at the public and art of the 19th century.
