Aubrey Beardsley Art

These image collections feature illustrations by Aubrey Beardsley from Salomé, The Yellow Book, Le Morte d'Arthur and elsewhere.

Aubrey Beardsley was unknown in 1892. By the time of his death in 1898, a mere six years, he had broken through the Victorian unconscious and hurled England into the 20th century. Many of his drawing first made their appearance in books or magazines with relatively limited subscription. Despite this, his erotic, humorous, and haunting drawings came to be popular and have been for more than a hundred years.

New: Images from Le Morte d'Arthur. Also the naughty images that parody of Victorian sensibilities have moved to the naughty beardsley page so as not to block all of Beardsley.

About Art Passions: Art Passions began a tribute to artists whose work I grew up, and whose work has meaning for me personally. The list of artists on artpassions.net, including recent additions to the site, as well as other information are available on the home page.

E-cards: While you are here, you can send a friend an electronic postcard. Or click on any gallery image to send it as an e-postcard to a friend.

Where to Buy Aubrey Beardsley Prints: You can find Beardsley prints at Artsy Craftsy, at the Beardsley Print and Poster Gallery, or use the Art Print and Poster Finder

Important: Please do not link directly to images at artpassions or download the entire site. See the FAQ for why this is a problem. If you download the entire site with an offline webstripper, you will take down the site. This will make me very grumpy and I will ban your IP address, entire domain or country, depending on how bad it was.
