15 Oscar Wilde quotes + 5 art nudes from “The Picture of Dorian Gray in Quotes and Nudes”

A couple of months ago, I published a coffee-table book/art book edited by Clare Diston, Celine Frohn and myself :)That book is “The Picture of Dorian Gray in Quotes and Nudes” – with 60+ quotes from Oscar Wilde’s original work + 20 nude painting studies made by me. We got a license from CMG Worldwide for limited copies: only 300! There will be no reprint or second edition!

  • But beauty, real beauty, ends where intellectual expression begins. ~ Lord Henry
  • Every portrait that is painted with feeling, is a portrait of the artist, not the sitter. The sitter is merely the accident, the occasion. It is not he who is revealed by the painter, it is rather the painter who, on the colored canvas, reveals himself. ~ Basil Hallward

  • Sin is a thing that writes itself across a man’s face. It cannot be concealed. ~ Basil Hallward


  • Nobody ever commits a crime without doing something stupid. ~ Alan Campbell
  • To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, wake up early and be respectable. ~ Lord Henry
