Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Published by the Metropolitan Museum of Art as a companion to an extensive exhibition of Honore Daumier's works. The three author- curators (and two contributors) have focused on the 19th-century caricaturist's less known drawings and watercolors, also using selected examples of his paintings, prints, and bronzes to illustrate the development of his style and his exploration of particular themes. A splendid celebration of an extraordinarily modern sensibility. 9.5x11" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
