Aubrey Vincent Beardsley

Beardsley, Aubrey Vincent (1872–98), English illustrator and author. By 1894 Beardsley had become art editor of the Yellow Book magazine and a prolific artist. His graphic style was one of sharp black-and-white contrasts, with flowing lines and detailed patterning; his subject matter—for instance, Oscar Wilde's Salomé, or Aristophanes' Lysistrata—tended toward the decadent or erotic.
