This black and white line block print on Japanese vellum is based on the original version J'ai baisé ta bouche Iokanaan, 1893, created by Beardsley for the French version of Oscar Wilde's play, Salome. The image depicts the levitating figure of Salome as she holds the severed head of John the Baptist.

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.
