This quantity is an interdisciplinary research of the effect of the operas, writing, and character of Richard Wagner (1813-1883) at the paintings of Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898). In exploring Beardsley's frequently iconoclastic versions--or perversions--of Wagner's paintings Aubrey Beardsley and British Wagernism within the Eighteen Nineties goals to enquire the function of Wagnerism with "fin-de-siècle" British tradition, particularly the kin among Wagnerism and modern decadence.
