  • The Third–Class Carriage, ca. 1862–64
    Honoré Daumier (French, 1808–1879)
    Oil on canvas; 25 3/4 x 35 1/2 in. (65.4 x 90.2 cm)
    H. O. Havemeyer Collection, Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929 (29.100.129)

    As a chronicler of modern urban life, Daumier captured the effects of industrialization in mid-nineteenth-century Paris. Images of railway travel first appeared in his art in the 1840s. This Third-Class Carriage in oil, unfinished and squared for transfer, closely corresponds to a watercolor of 1864 (Walters Art Museum, Baltimore). Daumier executed another oil version of the subject, which he finished but extensively reworked (National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa).

    This work of art also appears on Connections: Brooding , Privilege
