Daumier (1808-1879), a prolific caricaturist, printmaker, painter and sculptor, demonstrated an artistic inclination at a young age. He quickly became a protégé of the classicist painter Alexandre Lenoir (1761-1839), and further advanced his artistic training by enrolling in the Acadèmie Suisse, Paris. Daumier mastered the technique of lithography early on in his career, and published his first (of several hundred) lithographs in the satirical periodical La Silhouette in 1829.
