Alice’s Garden, Christ Church College (Oxford)

Brendan Neiland (b1941)

Screenprint, signed and titled in pencil, numbered 161/195.  Showing the garden in reflection of the window at Christchurch college, Oxford, this work was commissioned whilst Neiland was Keeper of the Royal Academy.

The garden was said to have been an inspiration to Lewis Carroll when he wrote Alice in Wonderland – he was a tutor at Christchurch at the time.  The garden has a large tree, which became the home of the Cheshire cat, and a green door which became the entrance to the white rabbit’s house.
