dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, July 14, 1839.
dc.description.abstract A terrified couple is walking very fast because they are afraid of two men who are looking at them and commenting on their behavior. In this series Daumier describes the various emotional reactions of his fellow citizens when faced with precarious situations… the doorman, who when peeking through a keyhole, sees his wife being embraced by one of his tenants, the old gentleman remembering with wistfulness his conquests of long ago, when seeing some models in a window decoration, but most touching, the father from the provinces who purposely is not being recognized by his “established ” son when visiting the city. Daumier succeeds to show the bourgeoisie with humour but also with that certain touch of bitterness and at the same time endeavours to help us understand how much we are all fighting to climb up the social ladder, while often forgetting our roots and damaging our own self-esteem as well as that of our surrounding.
