(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Rare original concept painting by Mary Blair for Alice in Wonderland, showing Alice beneath a hovering jellyfish during an underwater sequence, perhaps a precursor to the memorable 'oyster' sequence in the final film. In addition to the central subjects, the artwork portrays a dazzling seascape in green and purple. Accomplished in tempera on 10 x 9.25 artist's board. In fine condition, with tack holes at corners. Blair was a concept artist for Disney during the 1940s and early 1950s, working on designs for such films as Peter Pan, Cinderella, and Alice in Wonderland. She also created designs for several Disney attractions (including It's a Small World), and her largest work ever, the multi-story mosaic in Disney World's Contemporary Hotel concourse. A rare and unusual piece of Blair's sought-after original artwork. Learn more about our animation expert, Harry Kleiman.
