The Fundación Canal in Madrid presents in its Mateo Inurria 2 hall the exhibition Alice in Wonderland by Dalí, Ernst, Laurencin & Tenniel, which shows the works that, based on Lewis Carroll’s immortal work, were created by Salvador Dalí, Max Ernst and Marie Laurencin. It can be visited until 8 January.
The exhibition also features a large selection of prints of the original illustrations that John Tenniel made for the first edition of the novel in 1865, the two pioneering films based on the publication and the short film Destino, by Walt Disney and Salvador Dalí, released in 2003.
Alice notably sparked the imagination of the members of the avant-garde movements of the first half of the 20th century and inspired numerous works of the period. On display in the exhibition are 34 prints illustrating the different chapters of the novel or inspired by it, and 26 prints of the original illustrations that John Tenniel made for the first edition of the book and which are still present in most of the current reprints.
