John Tenniel  1820-1914

A prolific Victorian artist, Tenniel was a cartoonist for the British magazine Punch for close to 50 years.  It was he who first illustrated Lewis Carroll's Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass

He was said to have a visual memory so accurate that he never needed to use a model for his work.  As a graphic humourist and political cartoonist, Tenniel is considered important to the study of the late 19th century's social, literary, and art histories.  In 1893 he was knighted by Queen Victoria for his artistic achievements.
