Alice in process…

Alice by Anthony Browne

Antony Browne / Alice in Wonderland


Rubin Vase




"The fact that children love the art of Anthony Brown is proof that childhood is far more sensitive, discerning, visually acute and emotionally rich than adults often imagine."


Traveling though the Alices of Anthony Browne is an amazing adventure. Every time we look back we find other surprises that plays with the sense and the nonsense. We need to look for easter eggs hidden everywhere in many disguises.  These images bring a lot of references to surrealist artists such as Magritte and Salvador Dali and even Escher. Visual puns, jokes, double meanings, mirror inversions and mimicry dazzles our look and challenges our mind, openning doors to a magical world in one amazing dialogue with the mysteries and paradoxes of Alice.

“‘I hope to encourage more children to discover and love reading, but I want to focus particularly on the appreciation of picture books, and the reading of both pictures and words. Picture books are for everybody at any age, not books to be left behind as we grow older. The best ones leave a tantalising gap between the pictures and the words, a gap that is filled by the reader’s imagination, adding so much to the excitement of reading a book.’” Anthony Browne
