Description: Very fine, fresh impression on white wove paper with good margins. The scene is in a barber shop, one man in the background being shaved, a second, in front, awaiting his turn. The text reads: "The Devil! It seems the razor is not much good anymore…and it will be worse when it's my turn." The print is rare, according to the Daumier Register, even in its published state. It appeared in Charivari in 1847.
