dc.description Published in: Le Charivari, April 16, 1833.
dc.description.abstract We can see in this print a deputy suffering from a headache which is caused by his electorate, serenading him with a disharmonic "Charivari"-music. Since 1814 when members of the Bourgeoisie were allowed to vote, their only way to express their dissatisfaction with their elected representatives was the nocturnal serenade in front of the deputy's home. The prints from the series L’Imagination are very impressive. They have been drawn by Daumier while he was serving a prison sentence (first in the prison St. Pélagie) at the hospital for the mentally ill of Dr. J.P. Casimir Pinel (1800-1856?). Pinel owned a private hospital at 67, rue de Chaillot in Paris. His rather unconventional attitude and political standing made it possible to have political detainees declared “mentally unstable”, like Daumier. Instead spending their time in prison, these unfortunate prisoners were able to serve their sentence in the relaxed surrounding of a private clinic. The hospital was run in such a laid back way that some political “prisoners” continued their subversive activity from within the clinic. Daumier continued drawing this series while being at Pinel’s, but the transfer to the lithographic stone was done by Ramelet.
