Abstract

In this paper, we propose an interpretation of the work of the
Portuguese 19th-century artist, Rafael Bordalo Pinheiro, using the essay by Charles
Baudelaire, "Le peintre de la vie moderne". This reading follows a threefold
purpose: to determine a set of correspondences between what the French author
advocates and what Bordalo's works reveal; to reflect on their relationship to
Modernity; to contribute to the ongoing discussion concerning the privileged place
reserved to caricature in the modern ethos. This path leads us to introduce the idea
that we believe to be innovative of a kind of laughter of reassurance, alongside the
already conventional laughter of exclusion and laughter of hospitality
