Daumier (1808-1879): Visions of Paris”

Royal Academy of Arts

London

Through Jan. 26

Honoré Daumier was a unique figure in French art — perhaps in all art — as both satirist and artist of the first rank. Much more than just the foremost caricaturist in art history, he was admired by an impressive range of fellow artists, from Delacroix and Degas, among contemporaries, and on to Picasso and Francis Bacon. This extensive exhibition looks at Daumier in the context of his city, the capital of 19th-century European art. It includes 130 works: paintings, drawings, watercolors, and sculptures. Burlington House, Piccadilly, 011-44-20-7300-8000, www.royalacademy.org.uk
