Original and beguiling illustration of the Cheshire Cat from the 1907 edition of Lewis Carroll’s timeless classic, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” by noted British illustrator Arthur Rackham. Known as one of England’s “Golden Age” illustrators during the beginning of the 20th century, Rackham illustrated various whimsical scenes for this edition of the book. Illustration appears on p. 106 of the book, in the chapter entitled “The Queen’s Croquet Ground.” Drawn in pen, black ink and watercolor heightened with gum arabic and gouache paint for an opaque effect, illustration depicts the face of the unforgettable cheshire cat grinning widely in a dreamy smoke plume. Rackham signs his initials boldly “AR” at lower left. Drawing measures 8.5″ x 6″, with some later additions added by Rackham, and a glazing over the artwork for further protection. Near fine condition. Sold for $13,613.
