Ask Morgana 134: Franz von Bayros

I don’t know what to make of von Bayros (1866-1924). Was he Spanish? Austrian? Croatian? His style was somewhere within the Decadent movement – think of Aubrey Beardsley but with an obsessive attention to tiny, intricate detail. That’s what you can see in the images below, most of which come from his 1911 collection ‘Tales from the Dressing Table’.
