The Birthday of the Infanta
Posted 4 years ago and submitted by Vicky Scott | Share link:


I’ve created a new piece inspired by my favourite Oscar Wilde story, the Birthday of the Infanta and the illustrations of Aubrey Beardsley who collaborated with Wilde on several occasions. Wilde tells a tale about a spoilt Princess, the Infanta, and her birthday celebrations, although it’s his detailed descriptions of all the beautiful plants and animals which are the elements of the story I really wanted to get across. There are peacocks, pomegranates, lizards, lemons and many more, mostly roaming within her ornate gown in my illustration. I’m selling her as a print too.

We really loved working with Vicky. We noticed her artwork immediatley when trying to decide on an artist, because unlike a lot of retro artwork out there hers had a very natural and playful feel to it. Vicky took our feedback on-board, stayed enthusiastic and delivered more than we were expecting. We couldn’t have asked for more and we’re very happy to have her artwork featured in our #TileArt gallery.
