The Julio Fine Arts Gallery at Loyola University Maryland presents Honoré Daumier: Caricaturing Bourgeois France. Featuring select lithographs from the Michael J. Abromaitis collection, this exhibition examines the caricatures by acclaimed French artist Honoré Daumier (1808-1879) during the July Monarchy period (1830-1848). During this time a newly-emergent class—the bourgeoisie—replaced the old aristocracy and pervaded French politics, society, and culture. The exhibition explores Daumier’s political and social caricatures of a class in formation under the July Monarchy.
