The Art of George Cruikshank
George Cruikshank (1792-1878) was a British artist well known as a caricaturist and illustrator of classic and contemporary literature. He gained notoriety with his political prints satirizing George IV and Queen Caroline as well as leading politicians of the time. He is also known for illustrating the first, 1823 English translation of Grimms' Fairy Tales, published in two volumes as German Popular Stories (seen below).
Phoenix Public Library's Rare Book Room houses a notable collection of his illustrated books, copper etchings, a carved wood engraving and watercolors.
