One of the featured pieces in The Blackman's collection, the original artwork was produced by Blackman in 1956.
Blackman first experienced the story of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland through a talking book. He had never seen an illustrated version of the story. Here, the artist's madcap humour takes full flight in his interpretation of the dreamlike story; we can see how he delights in the grand distortions of scale. Shrinking Alice is widely interpreted as a metaphor for Blackman's own experience within the tight artistic circle of Melbourne.
