dc.description.abstract A professor at Robert Macaire's boarding school is discussing his philosophy of education. Robert Macaire may seem to be a realistic figure, however one should remember that in reality he is an artificial personality, created in 1823 by Benjamin Antier for his play „ L’Auberge des Adrets“. The breakthrough came in 1834, when Frédéric Lemaitre used the names of Macaire and his somewhat simple partner Serres-Bertrand for his various comedies in Paris. The figure of Macaire goes back as far as 1371, when - as the legend goes - Aubri de Montdidier, a nobleman from the court of Charles V was assassinated by Macaire. The murder was vindicated by his dog, the only witness of the assassination. A duel between the dog and Macaire, who was armed with a cudgel, should settle the case. The dog killed Macaire, who confessed the murder before he died. Philipon was the author of all the texts of this series. It should be noted that Daumier did not monogram or sign the prints, presumable because Philipon wanted to document his position as author of the texts and as “inventor” of the series.

dc.title.alternative Robert Macaire's Boarding School. Mr. Professor, here is my method of education: have a course so that the study lasts as long as possible, give holidays, receive gifts at every possible anniversary and as for the prices, one should be perfectly impartial.... - That is just, they should be given to the best pupils.... - Damn ! That would be stupid ! Upset the parents ? Not at all, not at all, prizes shall be given to everyone. To every man his due.
