Aubrey Beardsley did something to England and the English from which they have never recovered. unknown in 1892 and dead by the end of 1898 at age 25, he had only a very little time to do it. Yet of all of the English reputations of the 189-s his is the strongest. More than 100, 000 people crowded to see his work in London in the summer of 1966. The decorative arts all over Europe took something from Beardsley: in Paris, In Brussels and in Vienna you can see buildings ot this day which would not be quite the same if someone had not pored over Bearsley. His was an art of decisive effect, with No Compromise as its motto and there was nothing weak about the resolution with which he pursued it.
