The English artist and illustrator Aubrey Beardsley (b.1872 - d.1898) once quipped, "I have one aim -- the grotesque. If I am not grotesque I am nothing." Often compared to Japanese Shunga art, Beardsley's distinctive style of graceful lines and high contrast feature tall, elegant women and diminutive, odious men with grossly engorged genitals.
