About this artwork

Before the reconstruction of Paris that introduced wide boulevards and open urban spaces, Daumier portrayed common citizens facing unfortunate day-to-day situations in a series called Émotions Parisiens. In the old city, streets were narrow, dark, and ideal for pickpocketing. In this lithograph, Daumier portrays a man realizing that he has just been robbed.
