dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, April 21, 1839.
dc.description.abstract A bachelor is looking at his bird while holding a feather duster. It may be of interest to look at the two photographs shown here from the Noack and the Brandeis collection. The print from the Noack collection has been taken from the newspaper, while the Brandeis print is on wove paper (from an album?). What strikes is the fact that the "sur blanc" version shows a crack which goes through the entire image, starting at the upper left and ending in the text below. This would support the observation that the album/sur blanc prints had been published after the appearance of the print in the Charivari. In this case a damaged lithographic stone had been used. We are grateful for this indication which had been supplied to us by a French collector. Daumier is showing us the day and activities of a bachelor, in this case of Monsieur Coquelet. It starts with his waking up at seven in the morning and ends at 9 in the evening when he goes to bed. The series reads like a story and is therefore ideal for publication as an album.
