Alice In CartoonlandThe Cartoon Museum continues the celebrations of the 150th anniversary of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland with Alice in Cartoonland, looking at how artists have portrayed the heroine and the curious creatures from Lewis Carroll's topsy-turvy world over the years. When Carroll was seeking an illustrator for Alice he chose John Tenniel, the leading cartoonist of his day due to the appearance of his caricatures of Victorian politicians and celebrities in the pages of Punch magazine. This exhibition displays how cartoonists, caricaturists, satirists, animators and graphic artists have since created parodies and pastiches, jibes, jokes and gags of Alice's adventures.

 

About The Cartoon Museum

Combining art with humour, this addition to London's museum-cum-gallery scene is refreshingly vibrant. From political cartoons of Thatcher, Brown, Bush and Blair to rare originals on loan from The Beano, The Dandy and Topper, The Cartoon Museum is a place for reminiscing over childhood favourites whilst contemplating cartooning controversies of recent years.
