Oliver Twist Illustrations

George Cruikshank supplied all 24 illustrations for Oliver Twist originally published in monthly parts from February 1837 to April 1839.

Note: It has been noted that Cruikshank could not draw pretty woman, it also appears that he had trouble drawing children. The children in the Oliver Twist illustrations look like miniature adults without the defining characteristics of children, such as the disproportionately large head and soft features which make a child look like a child.
