Salvador Dali- “The Mad Tea Party”
Dali’s most sought after piece from the Alice In Wonderland Suite. The suite consist of 12 amazing illustrations with original woodcuts and an original etching. Done in 1969, every piece illustrates Alice jump roping her way through the magical wonderland. The Mad Tea Party is a heliogravure with original woodcut remarque. It tells the story of Alice becoming a guest at a mad tea party, along with the Hatter, the March Hare, and the Dormouse. In the course of the party, Alice reveals that the date is May 4 ( which happens to be the birthday of her presumed real-life counterpart Alice Pleasance Liddell). The other characters give Alice many riddles and stories, until she becomes so insulted that she leaves claiming that it was the stupidest tea party that she has ever been to. Alice comes upon a door in a tree, and enters it, and finds herself back in the long hallway. She opens the door, eats part of her mushroom, and shrinks so she get into the beautiful garden.
