When Aubrey Beardsley died in 1898, he was not yet twenty-six. However, in his short life he had become one of the defining figures of the fin de siecle -- a precocious line artist who redefined the limits of black-and-white art. His erotic, decadent illustrations for Oscar Wilde's Salome and the famous quarterly journal The Yellow Book set the tone of his style: by turns shocking, facetious, and cruel. In this impressively researched and lucidly written biography, Matthew Sturgis has uncovered new material and used many previously untapped sources to produce a compelling account of Beardsley's life.
The brilliant and brief life of the prodigiously talented, turn-of-the-century English artist, written by a renowned journalist and historian. 28 photos. 30 line drawings.
