Featured in the current exhibition, Something Terrible May Happen: The Art of Aubrey Beardsley and Edward “Ned” I.R. Jennings, Aubrey Beardsley depicted the grotesque, the decadent, and the erotic at the turn of the century, defining the British Aestheticism movement and disturbing the social mores of the Victorian Era. Join Caroline Corbeau-Parsons, Curator of Drawings and Paintings at the Musée d’Orsay, in conversation with Something Terrible May Happen curator Chase Quinn for an in-depth conversation exploring what inspired the artist and defined his images of the Belle Époque.
