Aubrey Beardsley was an English illustrator of the late Victorian period. His fluid, sinuous illustrations were influenced by Japanese prints and by the curvilinear Art Nouveau style. Beardsley was a prominent member of the Aesthetic Movement, a progressive group of artists and writers who pursued the cause of art for art’s sake and rejected the repressive constraints of Victorian society.
