Description

Basil Hallward is infatuated and impressed by Englishman Dorian Gray's beauty, and therefore Dorian has been the subject of most of Hallward's oil paintings. While Dorian is posing for a full-length portrait, he meets Lord Henry Wotton, a materialistic man who shares his hedonistic world view, stating that beauty is the only truly important thing in life. Dorian is persuaded to this point and through a course of events sells his soul so that his portrait will wither and grow old, while his earthly body remains young and beautiful. When the wish is granted, Dorian lives a carefree life while his portrait ages, collecting the all the soul-corrupting sins he commits.

      • bioText:

        Irish playwright Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) was born to successful Dublin intellects. This afforded him the opportunity to study at the university level, where he became known for his involvement in the art movement emphasizing the beauty of art rather than the political value. Along with being a playwright, Wilde also wrote essays, novels, and poems, most famous for his play The Importance of Being Earnest, and writings The Picture of Dorian Gray and De Profundis.
