Description


(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Exceptional original concept painting by Mary Blair for Alice in Wonderland, showing the grinning Cheshire Cat in a tree, holding up his upside-down head on a single extended finger. Blair beautifully renders the shadows and tree's texture in this fantastic moonlit scene, highlighted by one of the most desirable Disney characters of all-time at its center. Accomplished in tempera on 9.25 x 7.75 artist's board. Handsomely double-matted and framed to an overall size of 14.5 x 13.5. 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 brilliant, vivid piece of concept artwork featuring the enormously sought-after Cheshire Cat. Learn more about our Animation Expert, Harry Kleiman.
