Period Paper is thrilled to present a rare collection that captures some of Aubrey BeardsleyÕs unique illustrations. A Victorian-era artist and author, he loved to play with themes of horror and eroticism within the realm of the aesthetic. His artwork drew on Japanese influences as well as the beautiful curves and swirls of Art Nouveau. Virtually unseen online, each of these fascinating original images provides some small insight into the enormously talented mind of the artist, and would be an important acquisition for any lover of his art.
This piece was illustrated by Beardsley, Aubrey.
English illustrator Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) is best known for his beautiful illustrations. He was greatly influenced by Japanese woodcuts and the rising Art Nouveau style that was sweeping Europe during his short years, and somehow found time between bouts of chronic tuberculosis (which eventually killed him) to produce fascinating high contrast pieces while enjoying the company of other creative minds such as Oscar Wilde and James Whistler.
