“Daumier Again”. The survey by David Kunzle contrasts Daumier’s career with that of the then much more popular Amédée de Noé, who was known under his penname Cham. He was ten years younger and a disciple of Daumier’s role model, the tragically underrated Nicolas-Toussaint Charlet, who was banned by Baudelaire from the pantheon of Caricature. Whereas the previous article „Against Daumier“ mainly argued from a viewpoint of graphic social reporting, Kunzle´s contribution with his emphasis on pictorial narration sheds a more specific light on the question why Daumier was blamed by his publisher Philipon for his lack of imagination.
