Alfred Grévin


French caricaturist, best known for his caricature silhouettes of Parisian women. He founded the Musée Grévin waxworks museum, inspired by London Museum "Madame Tussauds", with journalist Arthur Meyer. He was also a sculptor, cartoonist, and designer.

Grévin spent the final two years of his life paralyzed, and died of a sudden stroke of apoplexy on 5 May 1892 at age 65 in Saint-Mandé.
