Alice in process…

Instead of the question “Who is Alice?” there are now paths leading to what Alice might come to be…

Alice by Adrienne Segur

I love the enchanted images of the fairy Adrienne Segur, who seems to have come straight from the elfish world to dazzle us. Her illustrations feed me, sing and dance like sweetened butterflies and flowers living in a magical and bewitched world.

"Fairy Tales are the myths we live by, evoking the imagination and teaching us the lessons of the heart. Adrienne Ségur is at the center of Art Passions because my lifelong love of fairy tales began with the illustrations to the Fairy Tale Book by Adrienne Segur.

About Adrienne Segur: Adrienne Ségur was born in 1901. She is often confused with the Comtesse de Segur, but the Comtesse de Segur was born in 1799 and died in 1874. The title page of the American edition of Misha, the Little Brown Bear says the author is the "Countess Adrienne Segur". Moreover, the American edition of Misha (1932) is dedicated to H.R.H. Princess Elisabeth of Greece."
