Original text: - Eh! bien, monsieur Mitouflet ... ne trouvez-vous pas que la grippe m'a un peu changé?.....
Looking haggard and emaciated, a man asks an acquaintance if a case of the flu has altered the way he looks. Influenza epidemics were frequent in Daumier’s day and a serious one occurred the year this print was made.
Included in the Honoré Daumier III: Law, Medicine, and Social Satire exhibition, 2018.
