Feelgood Friday: Daumier at the Royal Academy

Procrastination is one of my flaws.

Even though Manet is, in my humble opinion, one of the greatest French artists and certainly one of the most important of the impressionists, I nearly managed to miss the exhibition of his works at the Royal Academy earlier this year. The only way I could get a ticket was to join as a friend - so now I want to make sure I make full use of my membership!

This looks perfect for a little Friday treat, and the RA is open until 10pm tonight.

Apparently, Honoré Daumier was "a freethinker and chronicler of everyday life in turbulent 19th century Paris". Sounds like he was a blogger before his time!
