(Walt Disney Studios, 1951) Unusual original concept painting by Mary Blair of Alice picking apples in the perplexing Tulgey Wood of Alice in Wonderland. Accomplished in tempera on 10 x 9 artist's board, the scene depicts Alice in her blue-and-white dress under the bough of a bright pink tree. Alice, who has picked a red apple from one of its branches, inspects the fruit and its buggy inhabitant—a green worm with large eyes and an umbrella. Alice's amazed look and the eerie forest background lends the painting an atmosphere both odd and arresting, blending light and dark and the normal and the surreal in a manner made famous by the classic 1951 fantasy. 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.
