Aubrey Beardsley's Illustrations

Aubrey Beardsley's (1872 - 1898) career was short and brilliant. He became notorious for his illustrations in two "decadent" periodicals of the period, The Yellow Book and The Savoy.

In 1892 Aubrey Beardsley was introduced to the publisher J. M. Dent, who commissioned the young artist to produce illustrations and decorations for an edition of Thomas Malory's novel Le morte d'Arthur. Beardsley worked on the project during 1893 and 1894.

"The years 1893-94 were perhaps the most important in Beardsley's career. He was hard at work producing illustrations and covers for books and periodicals, including his first commission, J. M. Dent's edition of Malory's Morte d'Arthur (Beardsley had been introduced to the publisher in the summer of 1892). This massive work, issued first in 12 parts and later in volume form, contained over 300 different illustrations, chapter headings, and vignettes. Also in 1893 the artist formed an alliance with the person who was to catapult him to fame and prove his downfall - Oscar Wilde."
