Eames Fine Art presents a show of John Tenniel’s whimsical and nostalgic original wood engravings for Lewis Carroll’s incomparable stories: Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1871).
After being presumed lost for decades, the original wood blocks from the nineteenth century were rediscovered unexpectedly in the books’ publisher’s old bank vault.
Carroll himself directly guided Tenniel in the depiction of each character, and Tenniel’s images have endured for a century and a half, becoming the inspiring basis for countless reproductions and adaptations of Carroll’s stories.
Exhibition opening times:
- Tuesday – Saturday: 11.00 am – 6.00 pm.
- Sunday: 12.00 am – 5.00 pm.
- Monday: Closed.
