HonorÃ© Daumier is celebrated as one of the most trenchant social critics of the modern age. Through the use of the lithograph, he created works which offered commentary on the heady atmosphere of 19th century France. Brandeis University is the home of one of the major collections of his work in the United States, and this digital collection offers over 3,800 items from this trove. The digitization of these works was made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and the works were originally donated by Benjamin and Julia Trustman. Visitors can browse the collection by title, subject, or date, and they are also encouraged to create their own search string. To get a sense of the offerings here, new users can start by viewing the lithographs that deal with subjects such as actors, politicians, and Paris.
