Notary Profession Statue by Honore Daumier 3.9H -
Honore Daumier had been familiar with the world of the Notary profession ever since his youth, because for some time he worked as a clerk at a solicitors office. This statue adaptation is created after an engraving of Robert Macaire as a notaire from Caricaturana #5, published in le Charivari in 1836. The slippers and the richly ornamented long robe were typical of the Parisian, money-thirsty notaries of those days.
This sculpture is an adaptation of one of Daumier lithographic studies of different professions in France. With a touch of satire, he mock the Notary for having avarice in a difficult time for the poor in France.
Part of the Parastone Museum Collection of sculpture adaptations from famous paintings. Made from resin with hand painted color details, 3.9 in H. Weight 1.5 lbs. PN HD05
