Van Gogh and Daumier
After Millet, Rembrandt and Delacroix, Daumier is for Vincent one of the
greatest geniuses of painting. He permanently refers to him, to his thugs
immediately executed in the Daumier
On Arles he will write: Yes Im happy with my fate, it is not
a superb and awesome country, it is only Daumier alive and kicking.
People like Daumier must be worshipped because they stand among
pioneers. The merely nude figure, but modern is noble, eminent, distinguished.
