Oscar Wilde No. 18 (1882), the subject of Sarony's copyright infringement lawsuit that reached the U.S. Supreme Court. Sarony's portraits of writer Oscar Wilde became the subject of a U.S. Supreme Court case, Burrow-Giles Lithographic Co. v. Sarony 111 U.S. 53 (1884), in which the Court upheld the extension of copyright protection to photographs. Sarony sued Burrow-Giles after it used unauthorized lithographs of Oscar Wilde No. 18 in an advertisement, and won a judgment for $610.
Oscar Wilde wrote fiction, non-fiction, plays, poetry, essays. Favorite Play - even to just read - "The Importance of Being Ernest." Favorite quote - "Anyone who lives within their means suffers from a lack of imagination." Gotta love that.
