George Louis Palmella Busson du Maurier (6 March 1834 – 8 October 1896) was a British author who was born in Paris, France. He studied art in Paris, and moved to Antwerp, Belgium, where he lost vision in his left eye. He consulted an oculist in Düsseldorf, Germany, where he met his future wife, Emma Wightwick. He followed her family to London, where he married Emma in 1863. He became a member of the staff of Punch in 1865, drawing two cartoons a week for the magazine. His most famous cartoon, "True Humility", was the origin of the phrases "good in parts", and "a Curate's egg". In 1891, because of increasing blindness, he retired from Punch, and the family settled in Hampstead, where he wrote three novels (the last was published posthumously).
