Frances Broomfield: The Curious Invention of Lewis Carroll

In 1840 a young Lewis Carroll (or Charles Dodgson as he was then known) came to see an exhibition in Warrington. There he discovered a treasure trove of curiosities – works of art, specimens of natural history, and mechanical objects, including a Phantasmagoria Lantern and the mysterious Invisible Girl! In this new exhibition, Warrington artist Frances Broomfield reinvents some of the eccentric characters and scenes from Carroll’s famous stories and also reimagines that 1840 exhibition of curiosities and wonders.
