About the book:
London, by the end of XIX century. In an art studio, a captivating and rich young man Dorian Grey poses to a painter Basil. A dream of possessing a portrait which will age in his stead and accept traces of time on his angelic face will become a paradox and terrifying reality for him. Not only the marks of aging will pass on the picture of this beautiful young man, but also the shameful vices of his soul: a soul full of arrogance, corrupted and decadent, trapped in the abyss of perversity and cynicism, unrestrained greed and desire for the enjoyment of every kind.
From the fight for eternal youth lost in advance, Dorian will come out defeated, as a slave of absurd desire to identify art with life.
