du Maurier, George (Louis Palmella Busson)

du Maurier, George (Louis Palmella Busson)
born March 6, 1834, Paris, France.
died Oct. 6, 1896, London, Eng.

British caricaturist and novelist.

Forced to abandon painting for drawing when he was blinded in one eye, his skilled draftsmanship and engaging personality quickly established his success. His drawings for Punch, Once a Week, and The Leisure Hour were acute commentaries on the Victorian scene. His highly successful novel Trilby (1894), about an artist's model who falls under the spell of the musician Svengali, has entered popular mythology. His other novels were Peter Ibbetson (1891) and The Martian (1897). His granddaughter Daphne du Maurier was also a writer.
