Caterpillar's Mushroom

by Brian Froud

 Caterpillar's Mushroom This Brian Froud painting was one of the three Brian Froud paintings including "Drink Me" and "The Red Queen" featured in the Travelling Exhibition of Alice in Wonderland 1990-1991. This exhibition was organised by the Brotherhood of Ruralists, which includes famous artists such as Peter Blake and Graham Overton. After travelling to Torquay, Plymouth, Wales, Oxford and then on to the Picaddilly Gallery in London, the exhibition left the UK and travelled to Tokyo, Japan.

Brian Froud had always had an ambition to recreate the feeling of Alice in Wonderland within his own world of fairies, goblins and gnomes. Brian Froud's Caterpillar's Mushroom  reveals references to Alice in Wonderland throughout - within this Brian Froud painting you'll find the teapot, the White Rabbit, the Mad Hatter, the Playing Cards...

Though using acrylics mainly to create this work, Brian Froud also used coloured pencil and ink.
