dc.description.abstract Robert Macaire is advising a man in a street. 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 The public, my friend, the public is stupid...... we bleed it white, we bleed it to death, it is not happy..... it wants what's new.... it wants change, alright, give it to them ! let us become homeopaths.... we will joke with them, by treating them the same. Similia Similibus (Bertrand) System. Well ; here's a prescription that sums up the whole system ; Take a tiny grain of.... nothing at all.... divide it into ten million molecules.... throw one.... just one, one of the millionth into the river.... stir, stir, and crush a lot.... let it sit for a few hours.... draw a bucket and fill it up.... dilute it with 20 parts regular water and for treatment wet your tongue with it every morning, on an empty stomach..... Voila ! - Is that all ? - Yes...... Ah ! devil ! I forgot the most important part.... Pay for the prescription.
