Charles Blackman, Artist

Charles Blackman, the midcentury Australian painter known for his 1950s Alice in Wonderland series, is 88 years old and still working, despite suffering from dementia. The National Gallery of Victoria published a book of his Wonderland paintings in 2007. Now artist David Bromley has partnered with Blackman and offers original art, a limited edition series of prints, and a handkerchief and tea-towel based on his sketchbook here. There are rabbits and cats and nude ladies. His son, Auguste Blackman, also carries on the tradition by painting scenes from Wonderland.
