Portrait of Joseph Lemaire called “Darcier”, albuminen print, sticked on cartoon at about 1870-75 and attributed to Etienne Carjat.

One of the most original popular singer of the second half of the XIX century, Darcier (1820-1883) was in the fifties a very fashionable actor and singer who used to perform in the first shows of the “Bouffes parisiens” and then at the Theatre Beaumarchais or Delassements comiques.
A soul of an artist into an athletic body, Darcier was first of all a composer and composed a lot of popular and love songs and also spoke about the army and military life.
In the “Figaro” dated 10 december 1857 one can read:
“Darcier is un incomparable singer who remained until the end of his life what he has always been an incorrigible bohemian wonderfully crafted”.
By his rejection of absolute and especially his unconformism, he lived and died poor (Paris, 1883).
