George Cruikshank (1792-1878)
An incredibly gifted artist, Cruikshank's work became renowned internationally after he illustrated several of Charles Dicken's books over the years. Caricatures and satirical cartoons were his first love, and he was extremely skilled in both. Ironically, after passing commentary for years on the political and social states of his great British nation, his life was held under a lens after his death and found to be just as satirical as his work. It was discovered that Mr. Cruikshank had fathered a grand total of 11 illegitimate children over the years with his exhausted mistress Adelaide Attree.
