(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Vibrant original concept storyboard painting by Mary Blair featuring Alice from Alice in Wonderland, showing the instantly recognizable title character in her blue dress amongst a field of colorful flowers. The painting is expertly executed with fine details, including long-eyelashed faces on the orange flowers in front, swirls in the magenta flowers in the midground, and lively green sprouts throughout, all set against a pink-and-purple hued skyline. Accomplished in tempera and watercolor on a 10 x 8.5 illustration board. In fine condition, with tack holes to 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.
