George Murgatroyd Woodward (1760–1809) was an English amateur caricaturist and humor writer.〔Simon Heneage, ‘Woodward, George Murgatroyd (1760?–1809)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004〕 He was a friend and drinking companion of Thomas Rowlandson.
Woodward was born in Stanton Hall in Derbyshire, England the son of William Woodward in 1760.〔George Woodward in the Dictionary of National Biography accessed 12 April 2008〕
Nicknamed 'Mustard George', Woodward had a somewhat crude but energetic style. Widely published in the ''Caricature'' magazine and elsewhere, his drawings were nearly all etched by others, primarily Thomas Rowlandson, but also Charles Williams and Isaac Cruikshank.
Described by Dorothy George as "He makes a very considerable figure in caricature ; he was original, prolific,
and varied."〔(''Catalogue of prints and drawings in the British Museum: Division I. Political and personal satires'' (1870): "Introduction" )〕
