Relentless and decided like no other artist before him, the English cartoonist George Cruikshank denounced the grave abuses of European society in the mid-nineteenth century. Not only the decadent aristocracy, but also the lavish middle class and the lowly people, unreligious and addicted to alcohol, clearly felt his anger. With sharp, almost raw strokes of pen and ink he brought shameless rulers, conceited ladies and the rebellious people to paper.

To his real fame but helped him the world famous illustrations of bestsellers such as Daniel Defo's Robinson Crusoe, Miguel de Cervantes Don Quixote and Charles Dickens Oliver Twist. Sensitive, atmospheric and credible, Cruikshanks illustrations accompany and condense the actions. Above all, the portrayal of Robinson Crusoe has succeeded and has shaped the outward appearance of the protagonist in the minds of readers across generations.

Even personal experiences can be found in his work again. In countless engravings he processes the alcoholic death of his father. With works such as The Bottle or The Drunkwards Children he campaigned for a life without alcohol. © Meisterdrucke
