Being French I knew about Daumier but mostly his caricatures rather than his paintings, so I was very pleased to discover his art on a bigger scale. He had a sense of light that feels very "impressonnist" , especially "the rope". His paintings of 19th century labour class are very much in phase with the literary style of the time, and his choice of subjects gives us a good "picture" of the everyday life of the Parisians. I hope that this exhibition will travel to France !
