Daumier Reveals All
Following on the heels of Daumier's Salon: A Human Comedy, curated by former SBMA exhibition intern Elizabeth Saari Browne, Daumier Reveals All: Inside the Artist's Studio presents another selection of lithographs by Honoré Daumier (1808–1879) that provides an inside look into the 19th-century Parisian art world. In these works, Daumier reveals the artists everyday routines, as well as his career ups and downs, as played out in his studio. Like the previous installation, this selection of lithographs is drawn from the recent gift of more than 1,500 Daumier lithographs by long-time supporter Robert M. Light. Owing to this generous gift, SBMA is now one of the richest repositories of the work of this celebrated master of 19th-century caricature on the West Coast.
