Oscar Wilde's The Picture of Dorian Gray is an 1890 novel centred around young aristocrat Dorian Gray, who is the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward.

Dorian wishes for the painting to bear the physical effects of aging, while he retains his youth and beauty. Despite his outward appearance, the painting shows the corruption of Dorian's soul as he embarks on a life of sin and debauchery. As Dorian's actions become more depraved, the portrait becomes more grotesque, serving as a haunting reminder of his inner depravity.
