About this work
On the left, Albert Guillaume, society painter, caraicaturist and poster designer. Centre, Georges de Porto-Riche, playwright and novelist. Right, Joris-Karl Huysmans, whose 1884 novel 'A rebours' (translated into English as "Against nature"), became a textbook for the symbolist movement and was considered the ultimate example of decadent literature. It was almost certainly the 'poisonous French novel' which aids in the moral downfall of the eponymous central character in Oscar Wilde's 1892 novel 'The picture of Dorian Gray'
