dc.description.abstract A father tells a visitor that his daughter is communing with the spirit of Dante. The word „Fluidomanie“ used for this series can hardly be found in a French dictionary... it is a rather spirited invention of one of the Charivari’s journalists and can best be translated as “Ghostly Games”. The so-called fashionable Parisian bourgeoisie had caught on to spiritualism which was already fashionable in the USA and England. Table-turning, chiromancy and necromancy became an entertaining part of an evening invitation. As we can see in Daumier’s prints, some of these activities easily went out of control, creating some beautifully embarrassing situations.
