(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Exquisite original panoramic concept painting by Mary Blair of Alice playing with a black cat in a flower-filled garden from Alice in Wonderland. Accomplished in tempera on 19 x 9 artist's board, the large scene shows Alice holding the cat in front of a white picket fence, with several other creatures in the foreground and flowers with faces behind her. In fine condition, with tack holes to corners and some soiling to borders.
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.
