dc.description Published in: Le Figaro, May 29, 1840.
dc.description.abstract A man is asking another for money. This print demonstrates in a rather critical way a new trend in the bourgeoisie during the post industrial-revolution period of Louis-Philippe: "Doing good and talk about it". Daumier criticizes the pseudo-humanitarian attitude of the bourgeois towards the victims of industrialization. The population in Paris had doubled within ten years. Unskilled workers from the provinces were attracted to do menial jobs in the city, especially in the flourishing construction industry hoping to find a decent living for their families. The payment was 1 Franc per day.
