Aubrey Beardsley, Salome, 1892

Beardsley was an illustrator of genius, very close to Wilde and Whistler. If he had lived in the 21st century, perhaps his medium would have been the graphic novel…

The novelist and artist Audrey Niffenegger, author of the cult book The Time Traveler's Wife as well as three 'novels-in-pictures', will talk of her admiration for Beardsley, an amazing artist who died too young.
