Oscar Wilde In America

a selected resource of oscar wilde's visits to america

The title of the piece is written across the top of the image and reads:

The Name of Dante Gabriel Rossetti is Heard for the First Time in the Western States of America | Time: 1882 | Lecturer: Mr. Oscar Wilde

Halfway down the image are the words: Max 1916.

The Wilde caricature is not contemporary with the 1882 lecture tour. It was one of a series of twenty-three drawings made by Max Beerbohm between 1916—17, published in book form by Heinemann in 1922 as Rossetti and His Circle.
