Buss (1804-75) was a Victorian artist, etcher, and illustrator, perhaps best-known for his painting "Dickens' Dream." He specialized in painting theatrical portraits at the start of his career, with many of the leading actors of the day sitting for him, including William Charles Macready and John Pritt Harley.
