Charles Blackman's 'Alice on the Table' is among the richest examples from his Alice series. Derived from 1956 painting, this work is inspired by Blackmans then wife Barbara, whose eyesight was deteriorating. Nestled between a concerned rabbit, believed to represent the artist, and a swelling bouquet, Alice is left to navigate an increasingly disorientating world.
At once eternally romantic and melancholic, this luminous work breathes new life into the childhood classic. Placing a symbol of loss alongside the miracle of imagination, it is a testament to Blackman's breadth of feeling. For admirers of the artist and his legacy, 'Alice on the Table' is sure to inspire.
