Art Nouveau — the decorative, sensual, and uncompromising design style that flourished at the turn of the 20th century — was born at a time of rapid change. While new media such as film and photography provided alternative ways of viewing the world, the moral landscape of Europe and America was beginning to shift, and artists and designers used the erotic to push the boundaries of established convention. The turn of the 20th century, perhaps more than any other period in the history of art, was a time of sexual freedom and decadent extravagance.
Aubrey Breardsley was known as one of the most controversial artists of his time, before succumbing to tuberculosis. His drawings in black ink were influenced by the style of Japanese wood block prints with elements of the grotesque, the decadent and the erotic. This is a print in frame of a woman withthe head of a man on the side baclground.
