George Cruikshank (27 September 1792 - 1 February 1878) was a British caricaturist and book illustrator, praised as the modern Hogarth during his life. His book illustrations for Charles Dickens - who was his friend - and many other authors reached an international audience. His father, Isaac Cruikshank, was one of the leading caricaturists of the late 1790¿s and Cruikshank started his career as his father's apprentice and assistant. Cruikshank's early career was renowned for his social caricatures of English life for popular publications. In the late 1840s, Cruikshank's focus shifted from book illustration to an obsession with temperance and anti-smoking. In his lifetime he created nearly 10,000 prints, illustrations, and plates.
