The Dome (periodical)
The Dome, subtitled consecutively "A Quarterly Containing Examples of All the Arts" and "An Illustrated Monthly Magazine and Review", was a literary periodical associated with the "Nineties" scene, edited by Ernest J. Oldmeadow, publisher and manager of The Unicorn Press based in London at 7 Cecil Court. It ran for three years, from March 1897 to July 1900. It is usually considered to be the last more or less successful attempt to deliver a valuable literary magazine with a considerable circulation, yet working from an Aestheticist rationale, according to Walter Pater's concepts.
Even more than its more predecessors The Yellow Book and The Savoy (which mostly focussed on literature), The Dome dealt with both visual and verbal art, and it also covered music and theatre. It was known for its in-depth studies of painters which rose above the level of mere appreciations, and often championed promising talents such as Edward Elgar.
