"…in the work of Dudley Hardy, whose gay dancing silhouettes, white on a scarlet ground, did much to enliven the streets and, in the instance of 'Gaiety Girl' (a musical comedy) series, struck a note more nearly approaching the French than any previous work in England" (C. Matlack Price, p.70)

Dudley Hardy was a popular English artist of the Art Nouveau period. After studying in Dusseldorf, Antwerp and Paris, he became successful as a magazine illustrator in the 1880s. In the 1890s he received additional acclaim as an important designer of theater posters. Among his best known posters were those for Gilbert & Sullivan’s THE YEOMAN OF THE GUARD (1893) and for the musical comedy A GAIETY GIRL (1894).
