Artist Bio

A contemporary of Honoré Daumier, Paul Gavarni was a painter and prolific lithographer. The name Gavarni was a pseudonym that resulted from a mistake being made about his real name, Hippolyte Sulpice Guillaume Chevalier, during his early career. Beginning to make lithographs in 1824, Gavarni prints about fashion and contemporary life gained him recognition in the 1830s.

Original Text:

-C'est égal, je trouve que la Parrain de la petite vient trop chez nous...

-Ces noisette-la ne sont guère bonnes!

-Et ca fait jaser... tu sais bien que ce n'est pas pour moi que je dis ca: tu me connais...

-O tu ferais de ce que tu voudras, mais tu passeras pour un homme sans caractère... en vla encore une creuse.

Translation:

-Never mind, I find that the godfather of the little one comes too much to us ...

-These hazelnuts are hardly good!

-And it makes people talk ... you know that it's not for me that I say that: you know me ...

-O you will do what you want, but you will pass for a man without character ...
