Dickens, Daumier and the Man of Law

Gary Watt looks at forms of the legal profession at the start of the Age of Reform (1820–1920) as represented by Charles Dickens (1812–1870) and Honoré Daumier (1808–1879). It is a tale of two cities, London and Paris, and of the legal professions practised in these two cities, and it is a tale of two art forms, text and image, and how those two forms combined in print publications to represent the legal profession in the popular imagination.
