dc.description Published in: La Caricature, August 22, 1833.
dc.description.abstract This lithograph is a portrait of Royer-Collard, whom Daumier portrayed also in the "Ventre législatif". He also created a bronze bust of this parliamentarian (Gogg 29, Gobin nr. 6 with the title "Le Vieux Finaud", meaning old sly boots. In this print he is shown in a suit too large for his stature, meaning that the job is too big for him. See a similar coat at DR 5278 under wood engravings.Philipon had first asked Traviès and later Daumier to draw caricatures of Orléanist politicians, while he supplied the text as well as the ideas for their respective coats of arms. On April 26, 1832 Philipon explained the project, which was to be highly successful, to the readers of the Charivari. The publication however had to be delayed since Daumier decided to first mould clay models of each politician before drawing the lithograph. These “Célébrités de la Caricature” appeared under DR 43, 45, 46, 48, and 51, starting with Monsieur de Lameth. In March 1833, the Charivari took over from the Caricature and published another three personalities with their coat of arms under DR 144, 150 and 173. After that, the series continued with portraits and full figure designs, however without the allusive arms. This third section contained 18 full size portraits, published in the Caricature during 1833. While the former prints were of a vignette like shape, Daumier now showed the entire figure of the person, concentrating on their overall appearance, including the clothing. The sometimes “theatrical” costumes further enhanced the message the artist wanted to convey of the person’s human qualities.
