WHAT IS A DANDY?

We would like to define a dandy as someone with good taste in combination of living an extravagant lifestyle. Throughout the history there have been numerous of well-known dandies. Among these are Oscar Wilde and Lord Byron. Dandies have also appeared as fictional characters in film and literature. Some examples are Jay Gatsby from F. Scott Fitzgerald's "The Great Gatsby", Dickie Greenleaf in Patricia Highsmith's "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and Dorian Gray in Oscar Wilde's novel "The Picture of Dorian Gray".

The Dying Dandy - Nils Dardel

Dandies have also been portrayed in art. Here above is a picture of the classic painting "The Dying Dandy - Nils Dardel, painted 1918"
Dandy is also an adjective which is synonym with fine or excellent. "Art of Dandy" can thereby translate to "Art of the excellent/fine...". We hope you can find something dandy in our gallery that you can appreciate for the rest of your life.
