Abstract: Although 'The Studio' continued to appear until well into the twentieth century, it was during the 1890s that it exerted its most radical influence, especially under the editorship of Gleeson White, 1893-1894. Simon Houfe has observed, "The Studio would have had no success before the art-conscious 1890s and to some extent lived on borrowed time after the decade was over". Indeed its strength was the bringing together elements of the crafts movement and aestheticism in a way that proved briefly popular. The magazines' most notable success came in launching the career of Aubrey Beardsley. As Houfe comments, "the article which set the seal of modernity on the whole venture was Joseph Pennell's celebrated essay on 'A New Illustrator, Aubrey Beardsley' which came out in the first month."What follows gives an indication of the magazines' contents during this key period. See Simon Houfe, Dictionary of British Book Illustrators and Caricaturists, 1800-1914 (Woodbridge: Antique Collectors' Club, 1978), pp. 164-167.
