‘Salvador Dali’s illustrations for Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland.’

 27 June – 22 October.
“Christ Church Picture Gallery”

Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (published in 1865) is probably the best-known piece of literary nonsense ever written and Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989) is probably the best-known surrealist artist. It is not surprising, therefore, that Dali set out to illustrate Carroll’s book. He worked on the project, on and off, for two years, and the water-colours which are the basis of the printed illustrations, were painted at his home in Cadaques in northern Spain. The finished work was published in 1969 by Maecenas Press Random House, New York. http://www.oxfordprospect.co.uk/’Salvador-Dali’s-illustrations-for-Lewis-Carroll’s-Alice-in-Wonderland.’-27-June-22-October.html
