Artist Biography

Woodward was born in Stanton Hall, in Stanton by Dale in Derbyshire, England the son of William Woodward in 1765. Nicknamed 'Mustard George', Woodward had a somewhat crude but energetic style. Widely published in “The Caricature Magazine” and elsewhere, his drawings were nearly all etched by others, primarily Thomas Rowlandson, but also Charles Williams, Isaac Cruikshank, Piercy Roberts and others.

Dorothy George wrote of him "He makes a very considerable figure in caricature ; he was original, prolific, and varied.". The George Woodward Archive in the Derbyshire Record Office in Matlock, Derbyshire has a large collection of his works. Many of his Prints are described in the Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires Preserved in the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum. The most complete catalogue of his works can be found in A Catalogue of the Books, Drawings, Prints and Periodicals forming the William A. Gordon Library of British Caricature.
