Where form meets function

Dartmouth’s Hood Museum Of Art is playing host to a collection of wonderful and witty cartoons. Honore Daumier was (and remains) one of the most adept satirists of his day, delivering with great humor an account of France during the rapidly changing 19th-century. France in Transformation covers Daumier’s career and adds insight into the cultural and political scene of his times. On view until August 24, 2009.

More caricature work by Daumier after the jump.
