Event detail
 

The Marjorie G. and Carl W. Stern Book Arts & Special Collections Center presents The Illustrated Alice, an exhibit of work by various artists featuring their interpretations concerning Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There.  Alice has been illustrated by approximately 2,000 different artists since it was originally published in 1865. The exhibit will feature illustrators such as John Tenniel, Salvador Dali, Arthur Rackham, Robert Sabuda, Camille Rose Garcia, Barry Moser, and George Walker and show how each one imagined the story of Alice in their own version of  "Wonderland."

Related programs include the Book Arts & Special Collections Annual Holiday Lecture What IS It about Alice? with Mark Burstein on January 26th.
