(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Outstanding original concept painting by Mary Blair for Alice in Wonderland, which depicts Alice being scolded by the Queen of Hearts in the royal garden, with a pair of playing card guards observing from behind; the scene is perhaps a precursor to their fateful croquet match. Accomplished in tempera on 8.5 x 6.75 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 wondrous piece of concept artwork from a classic Disney feature.
