Although a copy this drawing illustrates John’s remarkable skill as a draftsman, his attention to detail and the fluidity of his hand make for a convincing study of Tenniel’s original. It’s unclear when he completed the drawing but it may have been as an exercise while studying at Art School.
The original is illustrated in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland / by Lewis Carroll; with forty-two illustrations by John Tenniel. 1865
