Grand Style

John Austen had a grand style when he illustrated a bee-youtiful edition of Hamlet, from 1922. His style was influenced by Beardsley and was akin to Harry Clarke. Later, his style and technique evolved into something less ornate and more caricaturized.

This pen drawing is from Hamlet, Act III Scene 2. And then I just had to zoom in on details.
