  • Text: Monsieur Daumier, votre série des Roberts-Macaires est une chose charmante ! C'est la peinture exacte des voleries de notre époque. C'est le portrait fidèle d'une foule de coquins qu'on retrouve partout, dans le commerce, dans la politique, dans le barreau, dans la finance, partout ! partout !!... Les fripons doivent bien vous en vouloir. Mais l'estime des honnêtes gens vous est acquise. Vous n'avez pas encore la croix d'honneur ?... C'est révoltant !!...
