Madame Marie Gresholtz Tussaud, Swiss modeler in wax. She learned her art from her uncle, J. C. Curtius, proprietor of wax museums in Paris from 1762. Tussaud was imprisoned during the Reign of Terror, and many heads of famous persons were brought to her for modeling. In 1802 she inherited her uncle's museums and immigrated to London, where she established Madame Tussaud's Exhibition, a museum that remains a principal tourist attraction.
