Honoré Daumier is today remembered as a giant among caricaturists. Central to his lasting legacy was his wonderful reinvention of Robert Macaire, the farcical figurehead of French 19th century social tumult and political incompetency. Today, we explore the history behind these celebrated cartoons, plus a fantastic promotional poster by the equally sardonic Bruce McLean and, with new Nic Collins exhibition pots set to arrive later this week, a taste of his extraordinary wood-fired work.
