"Nielsen acknowledged that his work was influenced by the art of the early Italian Renaissance, but most of all by oriental art and the art of the Middle East. Like the work of so many of his contemporaries, his illustrations show more than a hint of Beardsley's influence as well." (Rhode Island School of Design. Fantastic Illustration and Design in Great Britain, 1850-1930. p. 78).
