While our galleries were closed, we wanted to share the Aubrey Beardsley exhibition at Tate Britain with you. Join Tate curators Caroline Corbeau-Parsons and Alice Insley as they discuss the iconic illustrator’s short and scandalous career.
Before his untimely death aged twenty-five, Beardsley produced over a thousand illustrations. He drew everything from legendary tales featuring dragons and knights, to explicit scenes of sex and debauchery. His fearless attitude to art continues to inspire creatives more than a century after his death.
Aubrey Beardsley re-opens at Tate Britain on Monday 27 July and has been extended until 20 September 2020. Book tickets via our website: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-britain/exhibition/aubrey-beardsley
