Beaumont was a contemporary of Daumier who also produced lithographs for Le Charivari. Known as both a painter and printmaker, he regularly exhibited at the Paris Salon, and illustrated Victor Hugo’s Notre-Dame de Paris. Here, Beaumont offers a lighthearted warning about the camera’s capacity to capture our image even when we are not aware of being photographed.
The backs of a man and woman sat next to each other on a hill. The man's top hat is placed on a stick jutting out of the ground beside him.
