¤ This fabulous illustration depict formal movements of equitation for horse riding school movements. The print shows both A.de Pluvinel and the future King at an age of 16.
This original 1629 engraving is from Pluvinel's "L'Instruction du Roy". The engraving was done by the Flemish artist Crispin de Pas.
Antoine de Pluvinel (1555-1620) was a renowned 16th Century rider who was instructor to the future King Louis XIII. His work lays the basis for discipline through gentleness and understanding of the horse's mind, in particular making use of the horse's excellent memory which, if filled with bad experiences, could spoil the horse forever. Pluvinel exhorted the patient, humane approach. He is also generally regarded as the first person to explain adequately the use of the pillars with which he liked to assess the horse, his temperament and his movements without the weight of the rider. Many of his principles are still used today in the training of horses and riders in upper-level dressage.




2 DAUMIER, H. Abus de l'article 214 du code civil. Madame mon épouse... (Plate 50) Paris, 1864. Litho printed on white wove paper without text on the verso. 238 x 230 mm.

¤ Macaire personified the clever business man, who was willing at any time to throw moral and ethical principles overboard for a quick buck. His personality fitted exactly to the period so well described by Alexis de Tocqueville: self-enrichment at all levels and a Government run on shareholders principles. Short-selling, pyramid systems, investments in Californian gold mines and IPOs of non existent companies were the name of the game. Thanks to Macaire and Bertrand, all the little tricks were demonstrated in detail to the public.
Through Daumier’s drawings and Philipon’s texts, the public was made aware of the wrongdoings of Macaire without names ever being mentioned. Caricaturana appeared between August 1836 and November 1838, and various books were published in 1839 by Aubert, using mirror images, reduced and redrawn versions of the originals after Daumier and copied by Menut-Alophe.
After the July-Revolution and the reinstatement of the Freedom of the Press, CHARLES PHILIPON (1800-1862) recognised the growing desire of the public for information. In 1830, he founded the political satirical illustrated paper LA CARICATURE.
PHILIPON’s brother-in-law GABRIEL AUBERT was responsible for the distribution and sale of the publication.
LA CARICATURE can be considered the first political and satirical French newspaper of that period combining politics and contemporary art. In total, there appeared 251 editions of LA CARICATURE from Nov.4, 1830 to Aug.27, 1835 featuring 524 caricatures of various artists, of which 91 by Daumier. Each edition fluctuated between 750 and 2’000 copies.
2008 will mark the 200th anniversary of Honoré Daumier's birth. It will be the DAUMIER YEAR with events and exhibitions all over the world to celebrate this special birthday and to commemorate this outstanding artist.

¤ Rare lithographie de Daumier publiée dans La Caricature (Journal) N ° 201 / Pl 421. La légende de cette lithographie est une allusion aux dernièrs mots de Rabelais avant de mourir.

- Rare lithography published in the newspaper "la Caricature".
Louis-Philippe, disguised as Clown, jester of the Commedia dell'arte, makes lower the theater curtain of the Chamber of representatives.
The theatrical metaphor indicating the semicircle(French National Assembly), usually used in the period, offers to Daumier the possibility of realizing a first board on a theater, a theme which will be, for its centrings and original lightings, amply resumed afterward.
The legend is an allusion to the last words of Rabelais before dying. - Daumier Register 86.

¤ Lithographie publiée dans le journal "La Caricature. LA CARICATURE parut dans sa forme première comme CARICATURE POLITIQUE de 1830 à 1832, et ensuite comme LA CARICATURE jusqu'en 1835. Elle fut fondée par Charles Philipon et éditée par son beau-frère Aubert.

Dans la bourgeoisie riche, une des devises était: "fais le bien et parles en". Daumier montra de manière critique ce comportement très pseudo-humanitaire de la bourgeoisie vis-à-vis des victimes de l'industrialisation. La population de Paris avait doublé en moins de dix ans…

- Lithography published in the newspaper "la Caricature" N°222. When, during the reign of Louis Philippe, Charles Philipon launched the comic journal, La Caricature, Daumier joined its staff, which included such powerful artists as Devéria, Raffet and Grandville, and started upon his pictorial campaign of satire, targeting the foibles of the bourgeoisie, the corruption of the law and the incompetence of a blundering government. - Daumier Register, 108.1.
