Artist: Morgan Weistling Title: Alice Size: 16"w x 23"h. Edition: Artist Signed and Numbered, Limited Edition to 75. COA included Release Date: 11/2011 About the Art: Unlike Lewis Carroll’s famous literary character, Morgan Weistling’s Alice has managed to catch her white rabbit without having to dive down his hole after him. A featured work at the 2011 Jackson Hole Art Auction, Alice sold for over $86,000, far exceeding the auction’s estimated sale price. Alice showcases the blend of vibrant approach and outstanding execution that has made Morgan one of the country’s most important contemporary painters.
With his masterful use of oils, Morgan Weistling brings this simple scene to life. Spectacular lighting combined with gentle brushworks and impressions create this dreamlike image. A period piece with a modern-day flair, Alice is as timeless a work as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, first published in 1865. “I tried to capture the fun and imaginative world of children and their pets,” says Weistling. “This young girl and her furry friend were easy inspiration to spur this painting on.”
Alice exceeded the auction’s estimate because it so perfectly represents the bridge between the contemporary look and classic painting style that Weistling is renowned for. Our Greenwich Workshop Fine Art Edition delivers all the subtle nuances and color harmonies Morgan wove into his original work. Now you, along with the unsuccessful bidders at the Jackson Hole Auction, have the opportunity to own Alice. The even better news is that our price is set and you don’t have to worry about it rising. That is at least until this edition of 75 Sells Out!
