dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, October 26, 1859.
dc.description.abstract A wife asks her husband to not swear at the sea as he might anger it and they will be swallowed up by it. IMPRESSIONS NAUTIQUES and ÉMOTIONS NAUTIQUES are both series consisting of only this one print, which appeared in the Charivari on October 26, 1859 and in the Album des Charges du Jour in 1860. PRUDHOMME. Monsieur Joseph PRUDHOMME is an artificial figure created by Henri Bonaventure Monnier. The figure appeared already before the existence of the Charivari in publications like “Magasin des Visages” and “La Galerie des Grotesques”. Prudhomme impersonated the complacent, corpulent bourgeois of that period. Monnier described him to the point when he called him “nullité magistrale” (pompous nothingness), entirely self-satisfied with himself and his insignificance. MONNIER, Henri Bonaventure (1799 – 1877) author, draughtsman and lithographer. From 1830 on he worked for “La Caricature”. He also was an actor. One of his roles was Brazier in “La Famille Improvisée” (1831). He created the book “Scènes Populaires Dessinées à la Plume” (1830). In 1830, he wrote together with Vaez the drama "Grandeur et Décadence de Monsieur Prudhomme". Daumier drew a portrait of Monnier in DR 2347.
