Event description

Description

Aubrey Beardsley, artist, was born in Brighton in 1872. During his short career Beardsley illustrated works such as Malory’s Le Morte d’Arthur, Wilde’s Salome and Pope’s The Rape of the Lock. As the art editor of the Decadent journals The Yellow Book and The Savoy, he achieved notoriety for his black and white work – fine sweeping lines coupled with an element of the grotesque. Sadly, he suffered with tuberculosis and died at the tragically early age of 25. Despite this, his reputation as a significant figure in the Aesthetic movement continues to flourish.

Beardsley 120: The Death of Pierrot is a series of events that commemorate 120 years since Beardsley’s untimely death. The events are co-ordinated by Alexia Lazou (Victorians Valued) and present aspects of Beardsley’s life and work in various ways including tours, talks and films.

To launch Beardsley 120: The Death of Pierrot, come and raise a glass or cup to Aubrey at The Yellow Book café/bar and find out more about the various events taking place during March.

2pm Alexia will present a short talk, Beardsley – 25 Years in 25 Pictures.
