Item description

This intriguing precursor to the Alice in Wonderland series has recently emerged from a private collection where it has been slumbering almost since Blackman created it. It may have been painted in 1955 in the bush house on Tamborine Mountain that belonged to the poet Judith Wright (1915-2000) and her philosopher husband Jack McKinney (1891-1966).
