The Monster in the Branches

The Monster in the Branches
2014-01-26: I like this allusion by Henry Holiday in one of his illustrations to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark to a little detail in John Martin's The Bard so much, that I made yet another assemblage.


Color image:
John Martin: The Bard, now in the Yale Center for British Art

Large black&white inlay:

[right, mirror view]: Henry Holiday: From Illustration (1876) to chapter The Beaver's Lesson in Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark


I assume, that Holiday used allusions in order to construct conundrums. However, alluding to works of other artists also helps to draw inspiration in a quick and efficient manner.
