techniek,afmetingen onbekend

Arthur Rackham ( 1867 - 1939) was een Engelse tekenaar, schilder en illustrator van boeken.

Alice was just beginning to think to herself, "Now, what am I to do with this creature when I get it home? " when it grunted again, so violently, that she looked down into its face in some alarm.This time there could be no mistake about it: it was neighter more nor less than a pig, and she felt that it would be quite absurd for her to carry it any further.

So she set the little creature down, and felt quite relieved to see it trot quietly into the wood. "If it had grown up ", she said to herself, "it would have been a dreadfully ugly child: but it makes rather a handsome pig, I think".
