One thought on “See Max Ernst’s Lewis Carroll Illustrations on YouTube

  1. You just made my day! And great choice of music!

    I think Max Ernst was always one of the most genuinely Nonsensical surrealists, plus he had a real sense of style and was always whooping it up. The way he bridged the late 19th century visual imagination into the eternal, shared dream of surrealism made a perfect place for some of Carroll’s works to live in.

    When I was a kid out in the Virginia rural boondocks, my utterly cool, chain-smoking, wine-swilling, pharmacologically rampant Berliner-Tante Monica gave me a copy of Ernst’s Week of Kindness and I was utterly smitten. Carroll & Ernst, sounds like deranged, hipster accountants!
