Tate Liverpool’s wonderland

Date Posted: 27/07/2011

A new exhibition at Tate Liverpool is set to explore how timeless children’s novels, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass, have influenced visual arts through the ages.

Opening on the 4th November and running until the end of January next year, Alice in Wonderland aims to provide insight into the creation of the novels, the adoption of the text as an inspiration for artists, and the revision of its key themes by artists up to the present day. Highlights will include Lewis Carroll’s own drawings and photographs, alongside Victorian Alice memorabilia and John Tenniel’s preliminary drawings for the first edition of the novel;  works by Rossetti and Millais; and Salvador Dalí’s series of twelve Alice in Wonderland illustrations.
