The exhibition is the third show organized on the art of Honoré Daumier (1808-1879) for the UND Art Collections Gallery in downtown Grand Forks. Daumier was an important French artist, who chronicled significant social and political issues through his satirical works. Aside from making powerful political statements that reflected his anti-monarchist views, he also satirized lawyers, doctors, businessmen, professors, and lifestyles of the bourgeoisie in general. The current show, which focuses on the themes of law and medicine, features thirty-four original lithographs by the artist.Also, in concert with the Empire Arts Center’s support of art made in the region, two UND students were invited to exhibit paintings tied to the exhibition’s themes.
