Honoré Daumier, Ceci a tué cela

Daumier, Honoré (Marseille 1808 – Valmondois 1879). Ceci a tué cela. Looking up to God the lamenting figure points with the left to the oui’s of the ballot box, with the right at the fallen. Lithograph. (1870-71.) Monogrammed, otherwise as above. 9¾ × 7¾ in (24.6 × 19.8 cm).

Delteil 3845, III (of 4) with illustration of the 4th state; Rümann ills. 109. – Careful impression on better paper without the text on the back and the Actualité series title, before the black spot within the “oui” above the box.

Created in the great style of the final years, omitting all material and “accusing the wrong of the war in symbolic figures only” (Glaser).
