Pennsbury Inn - Chadds Ford, PA, 19317, United States

February 7, 2015 - May 10, 2015

Come see this exhibit at the Delaware Art Museum. Oscar Wilde’s Salomé: Illustrating Death and Desire will feature artists’ interpretations of this controversial play throughout the ages. The play was banned from production in London in 1893 and was not performed until three years later in Paris. Despite this controversy, the play’s publication, which included illustrations by the symbolist artist Aubrey Beardsley (1894), received significant recognition. The complete set of Beardsley’s lithographic illustrations will be on view. Illustrators have been attracted to the play’s rhythmic prose and subject matter ever since and several examples of these illustrations will also be on display. Engravings by Barry Moser illustrating the most recent publication (2011) and a new translation of the original French version by Joseph Donohue, will be featured in the exhibition.
