1872: Aubrey Beardsley and Mikhail Kuzmin are Born

English artist Aubrey Beardsley (1872–1898) is born in Brighton on 21 August 1872. His Russian admirer, modernist writer and poet Mikhail Kuzmin (1872–1936) is born on 18 October of the same year in Yaroslavl. Kuzmin’s oeuvre is saturated with allusions to Beardsley’s works.
