"Robert Macaire, Notaire" - Notar, Notary
Oh sublime Macaire! You, notary of the whole bank of bankers, inventor of pinched profit of bribes and all shades and sizes, you are being slandered, you are taken for a croundrel! É..Ingratitude of Society..and their stockholders!"
Lithograph after Honore Daumier
Published "Le Journal pour fire". Ca. 1840
Original antique print
Robert Macaire is not a real person. He is a fictional character of doubtful esteem. He appears in French movies, plays, caricatures, etc. Honore Daumier depicted him as a swindler and a sinister character. Here he is accused of being a fraudulous notary.
Very good condition.
