19th C, French School, Caricatures of Two Lawyers

COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM
These two caricatures are composed after a painting by French artist Honoré Daumier (1808-1879). He was best known as printmaker, caricaturist, painter and sculptor, whose many works offer commentary on social and political life in France in the 19th century. Pairs or groups of lawyers are the subject of many of Daumier’s drawings. Frequently the figures are contrasting visual types, as is seen with these two sculptors. One of the two has a small round face and the other figure’s head is very long with very distinguished, sharp features. These caricatures were probably based of the painting “Two Lawyers Conversing” dating around ca. 1860, the period the artist was at the top of his game.

For COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM owner Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History, Tribal Art, Paintings, Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
