The imaginative story was first narrated by Lewis Carroll one golden afternoon to a young Alice Liddell and her sisters. Carroll later wrote down and expanded the story, which was then embellished by John Tenniel’s lively illustrations. The bizarre tale with its vivid imagery and clever wordplay has enchanted audiences ever since.
Despite being analysed, updated, reimagined, appropriated and even re-illustrated, the tale always remains close to Carroll’s original version.
This exhibition charts the ways in which both Carroll and Tenniel were involved in the publication process and looks at how the story has inspired so many other mediums.
Highlights include Carroll’s original manuscript and works from later illustrators and artists fascinated by the story, including Salvador Dali, Mervyn Peake, Ralph Steadman, Arthur Rackham and Mabel Lucie Atwell.
