Synopsis:
This is the first book to explore the influence of Japanese art on Aubrey Beardsley's work. Placing Japanese woodblock prints in the English and French cultural milieu of the last third of the Victorian era, Professor Zatlin examines Beardsley's technical and thematic adaptations of Japanese art. She shows how Japanese art set Beardsley free from British artistic restraints and enabled him to create his striking and personal style--one that permanently changed book illustration on three continents.
