Aubrey Beardsley was a freak, as his contemporaries recognised - a phenomenon. Between 1893 and 1898 (when he died from tuberculosis before his 26th birthday) he developed into one of the world's most exciting graphic artists, and turned out hundreds of black and white drawings, which retain their power to fascinate, to amuse and to shock.
In this film Brian Reade , Brigid Brophy , Ralph Steadman , and a psychiatrist, discuss Beardsley's work and recall the story of his short life. The film has been made almost throughout from Beardsley's original drawings.
