dc.description.abstract Robert Maciare is courting a woman. 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 Exploitation of love. O my treasure ! With what pleasure I admire you, I caress the charming portrait you sent me !....... Even you had it adorned with stones, what a folly ! You mustn't do things like that, it grieves me...... And this watch chain, it is beautiful ! How richly decorated it is!...... Also, I want my turn to offer you a present that is agreeable to you, reminding you of our love, our happiness....... I want to give you a lock of my hair.......
