Madame Tussaud: A Life and a Time
Teresa Ransom (au)
Here is the extraordinary life of Marie Tussaud, the woman behind the famous waxworks. Born Marie Grosholtz in 1761, Marie modeled many of the Paris notables, including Voltaire and Rousseau. With the onset of the Revolution, Marie returned to Paris, where she met several members of the revolutionary govít. Forced to make models from the guillotined heads of many of her friends, she took death masks from the decapitated heads of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. She married Francois Tussaud but the marriage was a disaster. She took her young son and several wax figures to London, where her exhibition drew large crowds. She toured Britain for the next 33 years. Her museum was established in Baker Street in 1835. Illustrations.
