Aubrey Beardsley

Beardsley was very big in the 60s and 70s. There were posters all over walls in every student residence. There was something feminine and druggy about his work. It seemed decadent and vulgar. It seemed to me that he had become the artist of the ‘pseudo-intellectuals’. Since then he has almost disappeared from the popular scene. (Or maybe I’m just that far out of it myself.)

Aubrey Beardsley was born on August 21, 1872 in Brighton, Sussex, England. With only minimal art training, Beardsley was commissioned to illustrate an edition of Malory’s Le Morte Darthur. His highly erotic illustrations for Oscar Wilde’s Salomé won him notoriety but lead to a loss of work after the Wilde scandal. Beardsley, who had contracted tuberculosis at age 6, died in 1898 at age 25.
