Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

John Austen was born in Kent, England in 1886. That's the same year as Kay Nielsen, and both share a fascination with a style of art made most popular by Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898).  As Impressionism and Art Nouveau were confronting and confusing the public, the "decadent" style of Beardsley was finding its own audience.  Harry Clarke, Nielsen, Alastair, and others were enamored with the strength of line and form and startling, solid blacks.

It wasn't until 1906 when (showing 500 of 4568 characters).
