(pseudonym of Jean Ignace Isidore Gérard). Born Sept. 15, 1803, in Nancy; died Mar. 17, 1847, in Vanves, near Paris. French graphic artist.

Grandville became famous for his topical and acerb political caricatures of the French bureaucracy and bourgeoisie, which appeared primarily in the satiric magazine Caricature beginning in 1830. He also illustrated Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels (1838) and Defoe’s Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe (1840). Grandville’s work was characterized by its metaphorical use of animal and occasionally other subjects and by the careful detail of the drawings.
