Honore Daumier produced over 4000 lithographs with a keen critique of contemporary society and a visionary chronicling of his time through his lively and innovative black and white images. Superb examples of his lithography includes an amusing and delightful look at married life and the middle class obsession with leisure pursuits, such as hunting and fishing.

In this image Daumier mocks the tranquility of the leisure pursuit with the rush and crowd of the commute to the countryside.
