Art and Life in Dorian Gray


Art is a huge part of the Dorian Gray story; it all starts with the painting that Basil created of Dorian. This painting shows through to the real Dorian Gray and it contains every bit of him. Dorian believes that this painting will keep him from aging, when it would eventually be the death of him. Dorian didn’t take to art like Basil did; after all, creating pieces of art work were his life’s work and income. This book revolves around the creation of Basil’s work and how it forms each of the characters.
