Happy Birthday Lewis Carroll - Collector's Treasure of the Day

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland Original Art Signed by Willy Pogany
Today marks the birthday of English writer and mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (1832 – -1898), better known by his pen name, Lewis Carroll. His most famous books are Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and its sequel Through the Looking-Glass. Our Collector's Treasure of the Day is this original illustration of "Shrinking Alice" from page 23 of the 1929 edition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Willy Pogany (1882-1955). The prolific Hungarian-born artist  modernized Alice with a whimsical "Art Nouveau" flair and his charming illustration demonstrates the effects of the bottle marked "Drink Me". Hand-Signed by Pogany. Pen and ink on paper. Image size is 4 x 7.25 with an overall size of 11.25 x 14.25 inches. Authenticity guaranteed for life by Collector's Shangri-La.
