(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Original concept painting by Mary Blair of Alice from Alice in Wonderland, which depicts the curious title character as she starts down a path into the dark Tulgey Wood of Wonderland, with a large angular tree looming in the foreground. Accomplished in gouache on 7.75 x 5.75 artist's paper. 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.
