This Year, Venuses Again... Always Venuses! (1864) is a lithograph by Honoré Daumier made at the occasion of the Paris Salon of 1864 first published in Le Charivari in a series of plates entitled Croquis pris au Salon. The engraving is a commentary on the many Venuses (short for female nude) at the Paris Salons.

The caption reads:

« — Cette année encore des Vénus... toujours des Vénus !... comme s'il y avait des femmes faites comme ça!
"This year again … Venus … always Venus and nothing but Venus … as if there were women with such figures!"
