Description : The Daily Metamorphoses make up a collection of 71 lithographs depicting daily situations, but the characters are animal heads. These boards thus portray the qualities and vices attributed to animals, those that are often the subject of proverbs. Anthropomorphization is not an invention of the 19th century, but Grandville’s work, that of exceptional expertise, comes to entirely renew this theme.
