Aubrey Beardsley - The Victorian Parodies

These are the naughty images that kids like to giggle at. Actually, I giggle, too.

Aubrey Beardsley was not at home in the Victorian society in which he lived. These images poke fun at that society and its values. He did make people think. Although most of his drawing were for books or magazines seen by few people, his erotic and haunting drawings have been well known for more than a hundred years.

You can find more information about Aubrey Beardsley on the main Beardsley page. The list of Art Passions artist is on both the site map and on the home page.

E-cards: While you are here, you can send a friend an electronic postcard. Once you display the image, click on it send it as an e-postcard to a friend.

    VERY IMPORTANT: Please stop sending these images anonymously to your teacher or I will have to disable the postcard script for these images. AM I MAKING MYSELF CLEAR?

Other things: Please do not link directly to images at artpassions or download the entire site. See the FAQ for why this is a problem. If you download the entire site with an offline webstripper, you will take down the site. This will make me very grumpy and I will ban your IP address, entire domain or country, depending on how bad it was.
