The DAUMIER REGISTER has accomplished another step towards the completion of the catalogue raisonné. We are happy to inform you that we have published the catalogue raisonné of Daumier’s oil paintings. This represents the third part of the DAUMIER REGISTER (http://www.daumier-register.org) after the 4’000 lithographs and the 1’000 wood engravings.
You will now find all of Daumier’s 540 paintings in the same structure as the prints. We have added several new search functions to define the paintings and to allow cross references between paintings and the graphic oeuvre.
Several years of research have gone into this work catalogue and we wouldn’t have been able to complete it without the generous help of many Museums, Libraries and private collectors to whom we are immensely grateful. But apart from our own input we also relied on computer programming specialists. If you feel that our work might be useful and of interest to your collection we would greatly appreciate if you could consider a donation towards the upkeep of this research tool.
We hope you will enjoy this new addition.
