dc.description.abstract Madier de Monjau is shown here as a simpleton carrying the Diogenes lantern. But like the Greek philosopher, he is unable to find an honest man. Daumier alludes to him as somewhat naive and stupid, chasing butterflies. The word "Jocrisse" is an expression from the old French theater. This was a person who was permanently duped by others. He is the simpleton and laughing stock of his companions. Daumier also played with the name of Madier, calling him Madrier, a thick plank of oak. Joseph Paulin Madier de Monjau (1785-1865) was a magistrate, lawyer, and politician. He also served as Deputy from 1831 to 1837 and as Attorney General in Lyon. He published the newspaper “L’Esprit Public”.
