Excerpt from Aubrey Beardsley and the Yellow Book
Literature appear to us to compare in this singular volume far from favourably with the old.
It may interest the Times critic to know that Sir Frederic Leighton was a great admirer of Beardsley's work. At one of Sir Frederic's periodical visits to the Bodley Head to see how the New Art and the New Literature were develop ing, he playfully suggested that if he was not performing an r.a. Duty he was doing a neigh bourly one. He asked to see the originals of Beardsley's Yellow Book pictures (vol. I.) and then remarked: Ah! What wonderful line! What a great artist and then sotto 'voee, if he could only draw! My retort was, Sir Frederic, I am tired of seeing the work of men who can only draw. Oh! Yes, said Sir Frederic, I know What you mean, and you are quite right too.
