dc.description.abstract This print shows Rodrigo and Don Diego in Corneille's play "Le Cid" (Act 1, Scene 5). The financial aspects between artists and the director of the theater can at best be described as highly unusual. On June 28, 1843 the Charivari published the following comments: “What a bizarre world, what contrasts, what a mix up of existences of theses pariahs of civilization. What a life of nomads, and what daily misery… Daumier shows us all this with his drawing pencil. One will find all the remains of upper society, classes and positions: the intellectual as well as the dog sheerer, the former wholesale trader as well as the political refugee, a prefect of the Empire as well as the clothes salesman. It’s this unusual mixture of hopes and incidents which are thriving to reach their fulfilment in Paris. Furthermore, a very spirited and strong hand is leading these people helping them to pull the basis of today’s societies without constraints to the open.”
