About the artist
Aubrey Beardsley (1872-98) was a draughtsman and illustrator, perhaps best remembered for his powerful illustrations of Oscar Wilde’s controversial play Salomé. Although he died tragically young at the age of just 25, he was prolific in his work, producing hundreds of illustrations for books, periodicals and posters in a career spanning just under seven years. He explored the erotic and the elegant, the humorous and grotesque, winning admirers around the world with his distinctive style.
