Long Description:

The Biography website tells us about Aubrey Beardsley:

Aubrey Beardsley was a 19th-century English artist and illustrator. He was associated with Oscar Wilde and the Aesthetic movement in art.

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.
