Dorian Gray is the subject of a full-length portrait in oil by Basil Hallward, an artist who is impressed and infatuated by Dorian's beauty; he believes that Dorian's beauty is responsible for the new mode in his art as a painter. Through Basil, Dorian meets Lord Henry Wotton, and he soon is enthralled by the aristocrat's hedonistic worldview: that beauty and sensual fulfilment are the only things worth pursuing in life.Newly understanding that his beauty will fade, Dorian expresses the desire to sell his soul, to ensure that the picture, rather than he, will age and fade. The wish is granted, and Dorian pursues a libertine life of varied and amoral experiences, while staying young and beautiful; all the while his portrait ages and records every soul-corrupting sin.

Dorian Gray's extraordinary beauty wins the admiration of an artist who begins painting portraits of him, all but one depicting him as an ancient hero. This single portrait is of Dorian in his very essence; an honest depiction of his character and beauty. But when someone tells Dorian that beauty fades, he begins to see the portrait as a menacing thing, which will inevitably remind him of the beauty he once had. Dorian pledges his soul for a critical exchange: that the picture bears the burden of ageing and dishonour, and that he stays young and beautiful forever. As Dorian indulges in the most hedonistic of lifestyles, exploiting his own beauty and completely disbarring all morality, the portrait grows uglier and older while he shows no signs of physical degradation. Dorian Grayis a story of extreme selfishness, masked by the appeal of eternal beauty.
