Documenting scores of illustrations by Daumier and other artists, this slim catalogue surveys the development of a genre of graphic art devoted to satirizing the pretensions and controversies of the official Salons and to parodying celebrated individual paintings. Includes discussions of the Parisian journals and pamphlets in which the caricatures appeared from the 1840s through the 1880s and a detailed description of works produced in response to the 1868 Salon.
