Man on a Rope, 1858
|Artist||Daumier, Honoré Victorin||
Daumier always had great respect for men who do hard work . Men at their work provided him with expressive subjects which enabled him to make use of his astonishing knowledge of anatomy and to give free rein to that sense of the epic which is so often discernible in his art .
