About Marie Tussaud: Tussaud learned the art of wax modeling from Dr. Philippe Curtius, a physician skilled in wax modeling. Her mother worked as a housekeeper for Curtius. Tussaud created her first wax sculpture of Voltaire in 1777, according to Wikipedia.

She moved to London in 1802 as a result of the Franco-British War and started up her museum in 1835. The museum’s most recognizable element was its “Chamber of Horrors,” which displayed waxwork of human victims of the French Revolution. The Chamber of Horrors now also includes wax sculptures of murderers and other criminals, according to Wikipedia.

On April 15, 1850, Marie Tussaud died in her sleep. She created a self-portrait, which is on display at the museum’s entrance.
