Born in London in 1792, George Cruikshank became the first English artist who combined "lively imagination and high good humor with fine drawing" when he illustrated books for children. Among his many credits are illustrations for the English edition of Grimm's Fairy Tales, published in the 1820's. He could not resist poking fun at the modes and manners of his own time and recorded his satire in sketches that appeared in Comic Almanacks. Perhaps Cruikshank's illustrations for Charles Dickens' Oliver Twist brought him the most fame. One critique commented that he brought to life Fagin the Jew, the irrespressible Artful Dodger and Mr. Bumble. Cruikshank died in 1878.
This collection holds only one item: a pencil sketch signed by Cruikshank. On the reverse side are seven other pencil sketches.
