Aubrey Beardsley, Dandy of the Grotesque


This product is not available in the selected currency.

Descripció

This book analyses Beardsley's most characteristic works, clarifying why his art is indispensable to understanding fin-de-siecle Victorian culture. Beardsley's various grotesque figures serve as emblems of `monstrous' metaphysical contortion, even as his elegant designs simultaneously recuperate such dislocations formalistically. Alternating between an urge to outrage and a craving for authority, Beardsley's elegant designs and `dandy' sensibility effect what might be called a `caricature' of traditional canonical meaning.
