Alice in Pictureland at the Brandywine River Museum, PA


Here’s a rare opportunity to compare famous visual interpretations of Alice side by side, and a must-see for all lovers of children’s book illustration – if you live in Pennsylvania that is:


“Alice in Pictureland: Illustrations of Lewis Carroll’s Classic Tales”
November 27 though January 10 at the Brandywine River Museum, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania

As the museum describes it:


Alice, the Mad Hatter, the White Rabbit and the other wonderful, fanciful figures found in Lewis Carroll’s famous books have delighted people of all ages since their first appearance in Alice in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass (1871). This exhibition includes work by John Tenniel, the first illustrator of Carroll’s Alice stories, as well as by subsequent noteworthy artist-interpreters, including Arthur Rackham, Peter Newell, Jessie Willcox Smith, and Barry Moser. The exhibition features over 40 objects, including original artwork, proofs, prints, and first edition books.
