Christmas   in the Works of
Stanley Weintraub

Aubrey Beardsley:  Imp of the Perverse
University Park: Pennsylvania State University Press, 1976

p. 252

Christmas 1897 came to Menton, and Beardsley complained of the "horrid pseudo-Christmas gaiety spread over this un-french town"....A rare party of visitors was Constance Wilde, Oscar´s estranged wife, and their two sons, Cyril and Vyvyan. Beardsley "spoke with great affection of my father," Vyvyan recalled many years later....

Christmas Day itself was wet and cold, and Beardsley...remained in his room all day...
