Seldom do we look out upon Lewis Carrollís quintessentially English tale of Alice in Wonderland with anything but quaint charm and good old fashioned romance, through its many translations. That is, until acclaimed Surrealism enfant terrible, Salvador Dali put his own skewed perspective on Alice-based things. It just so happens that Alice was one of Daliís favourite literary characters, which ultimately moved him to create his own ĎAlice in Wonderlandí composition back in 1979 in watercolour.
This mixed media version of the original portrays the eternal girl-child in the direct aftermath of her close encounters of the surreal kind and the inhabitants of Daliís subconsciously-conceived landscape. Mercifully Alice returns to her reality not only unharmed but unchanged by her brush with the bizarre in Daliís less visually hostile pieces.
