"Alice Through the Looking Glass" located in Guildford’s Castle Grounds (Surrey, UK.) in a walled garden behind the bowling green, close to the house where Lewis Carroll used to live. “In a Wonderland they lie, Dreaming as the days go by, Dreaming as the summers die: Ever drifting down the stream - Lingering in the golden gleam - Life, what is it but a dream?” ― Lewis Carroll, Through the Looking Glass

Geoffrey | 201 comments This is perhaps the weakest of all the work I have seen of his. No, I believe him to be at the top of the heap. His work was on a supergenius level. He really is that good.

As for fame doing him in, no, I heartily disagree. The man was psychotic, no shame in that among the art field, and the psychosis that generated such brilliant work was what did him in, not the quick, deserved, rise to fame.
