    Inspired by Baudelaire, Walter Pater and Oscar Wilde, the artists and designers of the 1890s banished heavy Victorian opulence in favour of a lighter, playfully subversive style in what became known as the Aesthetic Movement. Wittily and engagingly written, and lavishly illustrated with hundreds of paintings, photographs, posters, designs, wallpapers and fabrics, this handsome book explores the development and philosophy of the movement, and the role of key figures such as Morris, Beardsley, Whistler, Mackintosh and Mucha.
