||This is the first book to bring together the recorded works of the English artist Aubrey Beardsley. Linda Gertner Zatlin's text presents Beardley's drawings with a full record of their making, provenance, exhibition history and references in the art historical literature. This material record is accompanied by often extensive discussions of their themes, motifs and symbolism, as well as their critical reception. Unprecedented in its scope and thoroughness, this study presents Beardsley's work and explores its meanings more comprehensively than any previous work on him; it is likely to remain definitive. This superbly illustrated catalogue is both an essential reference for specialists and an accessible and enchanting delight for Beardsley enthusiasts.
