    During his lifetime, Beardsley’s subversive illustrations became synonymous with decadence: he delighted in the erotic, shocking audiences with his bizarre sense of humour and fascination with the grotesque. His work was deemed too scandalous by many publishers of the period, but found a suitably unseemly home with the notorious Leonard Charles Smithers (1861–1907). Shortly before his death, with his health in steep decline Beardsley converted to Roman Catholicism and asked Smithers to ‘destory all copies of Lysistrata and bad drawings’. Smithers dutifully ignored his wishes and went on to sell many reproductions and forgeries of his work.
