This work by Charles Blackman, is among the richest examples from his Alice series. Derived from 1956 painting, Alice on the Table is inspired by Blackman's then wife Barbara, whose eyesight was ailing. 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. It is a symbol of loss alongside the miracle of imagination and a testament to its creator's breadth of feeling.
Alice on the Table is signed by the artist, limited in edition to 125, blind embossed with the Blackman seal, accompanied by a Letter of Provenance and comprised of the finest quality museum-grade materials. For more information, to discuss viewing, framing or payment solutions like artmoney or layby please reach out. One of Australia s most iconic artists, Charles's work speak to us all. To live with his visual poetry promises to be an ever-enriching experience for you and your family.
