ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From the 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland Illustrated By Willy Pogany
by Pogany, Willy (Lewis Carroll)
New York, 1929. Willy Pogány (Hungarian/American, 1882-1955). ORIGINAL PEN-AND-INK PORTRAIT OF THE MAD HATTER (From his illustrated 1929 Alice's Adventures In Wonderland published by E. P. Dutton). This marvelous drawing is that illustrating "Who Stole the Tarts?" from Chapter 11, page 172, wherein The Queen of Hearts is accusing the Mad Hatter of the crime. Pogany's version has the Mad Hatter trembling with fear as he clutches his tea cup and toast. The image is 4.75" x 3.5" situated in one corner of a large sheet of 11" by 14" heavy art paper. Pogány has initialed the drawing at the lower right. His lightly penciled outline and notations can also be seen. The detail of the drawing (which is sharply inked and in Very Good condition indeed) is spectacular in comparison to the actual printed illustration (see our photo of the actual size of the book image to compare). We originally saw this illustration in The Book Sail's 16th Anniversary Catalogue way back in 1984. It's our pleasure to finally be able to both handle it and find it a good home.. Signed. Unbound. Very Good. Illus. by Willy Pogany.
