Aubrey Beardsley by Stephen Calloway ( Book )
5 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 956 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898) was the most notorious illustrator of his day. This book, published to commemorate the centenary of his tragically early death at the age of twenty-five, tells the story of his extraordinary life and brief, hectic career. Beardsley's distinctive body of work is considered alongside that of his contemporaries and friends, among them Oscar Wilde, James McNeill Whistler, Max Beerbohm, Edward Burne-Jones, and W.B. Yeats, and set against the vibrant and often racy artistic, literary, and social world of 1890s London. Beardsley's startling designs are reproduced here from original drawings and from rare early editions of the books and magazines he illustrated. Also included are examples of his innovative prints, posters, and bookbindings, along with a gallery of portraits and photographs of Wilde, Yeats, and other celebrated figures in Beardsley's circle. The authoritative text is the first to fully explore the precocious young artist's diverse influences, which range from ancient Greek vase paintings to erotic Japanese ukiyo-e prints and European Old Master paintings by Mantegna, Watteau, and Botticelli

Aubrey Beardsley : a biography by Matthew Sturgis ( Book )
3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this biography, Matthew Sturgis has uncovered a great amount of new material and used many previously untapped sources to produce the most compelling and definitive account of Beardsley's life to date." "Starting with Beardsley's shabby-genteel childhood in Brighton and London, Sturgis gives readers the full account of Beardsley's brief and brilliant life, from the artist's close relationship with his sister Mabel, his inspiring schooldays, his miserable year in a London insurance office, and his first discovery of Edward Burne-Jones, to his sudden rise to fame as co-editor of both The Yellow Book and The Savoy, his spectacular fall from grace in the wake of the Oscar Wilde scandal, and his anguished period of declining health. Willfully perverse, Beardsley achieved a fame that polarized late Victorian England while forging for himself a unique position among the Pre-Raphaelites, Impressionists, Symbolists, and literary Decadents that defined the fin de siecle temper. Yet, as Sturgis clearly demonstrates, perhaps Beardsley's greatest creation was himself. His deliberate manipulation of the press and public, his awareness of both art and market-place, made him one the of the first truly modern artists."--BOOK JACKET
