Honor Daumier (French, 18081879), Bring Down the Curtain; the Farce Is Over (Baissez le Rideau, La Farce est Joue), published in La Caricature no. 201, September 11, 1834.

Our print was reproduced from Honore Daumier's great lithograph Bring Down the Curtain; the Farce Is Over, printed in La Caricature in 1843. In this work in The Met collection, a grotesquely fat King Louis-Philippe sovereign of the July Monarchy (183048)wears grease-paint and a Pierrot costume while he lowers the curtain on the French Parliament. The caption, the reputed last words of the sixteenth-century French comic writer Franoise Rabelais, deploys a historic witticism to make a sardonic attack on modern political cynicism.
