 Science Fair Projects - Honoré Daumier
When, in the reign of Louis Philippe, 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 scathing satire upon the foibles of the bourgeoisie, the corruption of the law and the incompetence of a blundering government.
Having mastered the technique of lithography, Daumier started his artistic career by producing plates for music publishers, and illustrations for advertisements; these were followed by anonymous work for publishers, in which he followed the style of Charlet and displayed considerable enthusiasm for the Napoleonic legend.
His caricature of the king as "Gargantua" led to Daumier's imprisonment for six months at Ste Pelagic in 1832. /science_fair_projects_encyclopedia/Honor%E9_Daumier

The two other leading members of the family, his uncle and cousin, were nicknamed after their main place of work: his uncle Johann Heinrich the Elder “Kassel Tischbein” [14 Oct 1722 – 22 Aug 1789] and his cousin of Johann Friedrich August Tischbein “Leipzig Tischbein” [09 Mar 1750 – 21 Jun 1812].
Degas and Monet were not particularly impressed by his works, which were marked by a passion for color that, towards the end of his life, brought him close to the Fauves. /42day/art/art4jun/art0626.html : Livres: Raffet
Raffet n'a pas connu la période impériale, et pourtant on a l'impression de regarder des croquis pris sur le vif ou des portraits d'après nature.
Raffet fut, avec Béranger et Hugo, un pilier de la légende napoléonienne.
Son œuvre ne se limite cependant pas au 1er Empire et ses croquis de voyage ou de guerre sont tout aussi remarquables. /exec/obidos/ASIN/2733502921

His eye was a human camera, and the results are those of photography, when uncontrolled by selection and elimination on the part of the operator. /articles30/french-painting-9.shtml
