#WombatFriday: Mad Tea-Party edition


“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly.

“I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone, “so I can’t take more.”

“You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.”


This week, I blogged about Lewis Carroll and the Pre-Raphaelites and Alice is obviously still on my mind this #WombatFriday.

The Pre-Raphaelite Society has posted information regarding Art and Soul: Victorians and the Gothic

Kirsty Stonell Walker reviews Liberating Fashion: Aesthetic Dress in Victorian Portraits.

Kirsty also reviewed After Image by Helen Humphreys.

The Art of Bedlam: Richard Dadd will be coming to the Watts Gallery soon:
16 June – 1 November 2015

The Fairy-Feller’s Master-Stroke has always been my favorite Dadd piece; it fascinates me. It’s so very mad.



Here’s an excellent piece by Neil Gaiman on Dadd’s Fairy-Feller: Neil Gaiman’s Fantasy Painting.
