About This Item

DODGSON (Charles L) "Lewis Carroll":

LAURENCIN (Marie) [1883–1956]

Alice in Wonderland. [Paris: Black Sun Press, 1930].

Complete set of six colored pastel drawings for this unusual Art Deco vision of ALICE, being the actual finished originals made by MARIE LAURENCIN inside a set of black and white outline designs printed as proofs on wove paper. Her original outlines would have been made directly on lithographic stones for printing whereas this manuscript series was prepared for the printers to create color-separation plates (which explains why the color-printed images in the book do not precisely match the published drawings).

Each picture is signed by the artist in colored pencil, with page size measuring 10-7/8 x 14-1/4 inches.

[Additional images available]

Together with: 6 canceled outline proofs from the printer E Desjobert, signed and dated "October 1930", with their printers' stamp. These measure 9-3/4 x 11-7/8 inches on tinted BFK wove paper.

This is one of the artist's most famous illustrated books and a memorable version of Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland".
