Daumier Portrait Busts – a project of Robinson Elementary School, Manhattan Beach, CA by Marianne Coble
Poking fun and exaggerating qualities to make a political or social statement was a talent honed by 19th century caricaturist, sculptor, and painter, Honoré Daumier. In the same manner as Daumier, the young student sculptors will have the opportunity to extract satirical imagery from clay. Using basic clay techniques, students will learn to sculpt small busts depicting one of three 19th century characters. They will have fun pulling and stretching, adding and removing, then painting clay in an exaggeration of facial features.

LE GRELOT 28 juillet 1878
Daumier vient de voir sa pension portée fr 1,200 à 2,400 francs. C’est beaucoup moins que ce que touche Mme Walewska, veuve d’un ministre de Badinguet.
Avis aux jeunes gens. Au lieu de se mettre caricaturistes, ils feront mieux d’être veuves de ministres.
Daumier has just seen his pension increased from 1,200 to 2,400 francs. This is much less than what Ms. Walewska, widow of a minister in Badinguet, receives.
Notice to young people. Instead of becoming caricaturists, they had better be widows of ministers.
